The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), on the 1st of August, urged the Federal Government and the global Christian community to ensure the rescue of the abducted Dapchi school girl, Leah Sharibu, from the captivity of Boko Haram terrorists.
The President of PFN, Rev Felix Omobude, in a statement at Benin City, Edo State, called on the government to do everything in its power to free the schoolgirl. He also appealed to the international Christian community to join in the search and negotiations to ensure that the girl is released without further delay.
“The PFN is considerably worried why it’s taking the government such a long time to secure the release of Sharibu. We urge the Buhari-led government to do the needful to reduce the tension her continuous detention against her will, is generating among the Christians in Nigeria and their well-wishers.”
Sharibu had been kidnapped alongside 118 other students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe State who were subsequently released. She was however held back for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.
An audio recording message had been released recently where she appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to have pity on her and release her.
