In Nigeria: Presidency has just announced Leah Sharibu still alive, FG negotiating release

The Presidency has dismissed speculation that Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi schoolgirl still held by Boko Haram, is dead.

It said Miss Sharibu was alive, while the Federal Government continue to negotiate her release from the terrorist group.

The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in a statement he issued on Saturday in Abuja.

Shehu assured Nigerians that the government would not give up on Sharibu, a Christian, who was denied freedom by the terrorist group because of her faith.

He stated, ‘‘Instead of giving up, the government is carrying forward processes that should hopefully yield her release by her captors.”

Stressing that she was alive, Shehu added, “Lines of communications remain open with the kidnappers, ISWAP, to secure the release of Leah Sharibu.

He called for patience to allow the government’s efforts to come to fruition.(Punch)
