Pastor Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has once again called for the release of Leah Sharibu.
The General Overseer called on all pastors in the RCCG as well as all well-meaning people all over the world to intensify their prayers and efforts towards the release of the young girl.
In a statement personally signed by Pastor Adeboye, he charged every parent and people of goodwill all over the world to use whatever influence they have to ensure that Leah Sharibu as well as other children in captivity are released without any further delay.
On February 19 2018, 110 schoolgirls were abducted by the Boko Haram terrorist group from the Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, in Yobe State, Nigeria. Five of the girls reportedly died on the day of the abduction.
While all the other girls were later released after some negotiation, only Leah Sharibu was left with the captors and she has since been in their custody.
There have been other abductions since then which include the Kankara Schoolboys abduction (who were later released) and the recent Kagara School abduction by bandits.
