Today makes it the 216th day that Leah Sharibu has been in the captivity of terrorists, simply for maintaining her fundamental human right to religion. She is the only abducted Dapchi schoolgirl still in the captivity of insurgents.
Being fed up with the soft-gloved treatment of the situation by the federal government, Leah Sharibu’s mother, Rebecca Sharibu, has filed a suit of N500 million against the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, over what she termed dereliction of their statutory duties in securing her daughter’s release.
In the suit, the plaintiff sought N500 million as compensation for the indignities and human deprivations which she said her daughter had suffered since her abduction in February 2018.
It added that if the defendant did not respond within the stipulated time and at the appropriate place, an order would be made and proceeding taken as the judge might think just and expedient.
