There have been an uproar of sorts on social media, concerning the young Christian girl Leah Sharibu, who is currently in the captivity of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists from Nigeria, as Pope Francis reaches out to Buhari over Leah Sharibu, one of the 110 girls who was abducted by the Islamic terrorists in Dapchi, Yobe state, on February 19, 2018.
It is now more than a year, 428 days precisely since the young girl who was only only 15 at the time was taken into captivity. There have been a lot of promises so far, with the Federal Government still up to just three days ago asserting that they will secure her release.

But then Nigerians have been crying out, everybody wants the young Leah to regain her freedom as there is no telling what she could have gone through, or still be going through in the hands of the Islamic militants.

The outrage is more so as the terrorists had ensured they released the other girls who were abducted alongside the young chap but have refused to do same for her because she refused to renounce her faith and religion as a Christian.

A lot of people have spoken up in the last 72 hours, including a former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri. Mr Omokri has attempted to appeal to the minds of the Islamic militants by referring them to the words of the Holy Prophet.

Below are some of the tweets he put out calling on the militants to reconsider their position on the Christian girl.

Also, reports from Punch have it that the spiritual leader of Catholics the world over, Pope Francis has also intervened in the case of Leah. This was disclosed by the Catholic Bishop of Nnewi, Most Rev. Hilary Okeke.

He said, “The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria had formally involved the Holy father, Pope Francis on the matter.

“The papacy has reached out to President Muhammadu Buhari on the issue. So, we are not relenting.”
