Suspected robbers broke into the residence of the parents of Leah Sharibu, the only student of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, still in Boko Haram custody.
The Cable reports that they invaded the parents’ residence on Monday and carted away the family’s belongings, including foodstuff and a generator set.
Sharibu is one of the 119 students abducted from the school by Boko Haram in February.
All the girls who were captured were subsequently released, except five who reportedly died in detention, but Sharibu was held back for “refusing to renounce her faith”.
Leah’s mother had just returned from dropping her only son at school for resumption on Monday, only to discover the house had been burgled.
No one was confirmed to have been attacked during the incident.
Dear @MBuhari ,
Kindly resign. Majority of Nigerians are tired. If u love the country like you say you do, allow someone else choose. The will of the many outweighs your will. RESIGN SIR!! You need to rest. We need to grow. Killings need to stop. Leah Sharibu needs to return.

As if the Travails of Leah Sharibu’s Family isn’t enough.
Leah, still in Boko Haram custody b/ cos of the prejudice of our leaders. Choosing to secure the release of other girls yet leave her behind.
Now thieves went to rub salt on the family’s many pain by stealing from them

A responsible government should have relocated Leah Sharibu’s family by now from that vulnerable place to a more secured environment.
