Leah Sharibu: “We Voted You For Security But Get Insecurity In Return”


The Christians Solidarity Worldwide Nigeria, called for the release of Leah Sharibu, Chibok girls and others who were abducted by terrorists in Yobe and Borno State.

The group, on Tuesday, during a peaceful protest, said that Leah was 14 years old when she was kidnapped in February 2018 among 150 of her classmates while in school at Dapchi, but one month later all the girls were released except her because she allegedly refused to renounce her faith.

The Chief Executive Officer of the CSW-N, Rev. Yunusa Nmadu, who led the protest, urged Federal Government and security agencies to take action and rescue the girls safely.

“We voted you in for security but what we get is insecurity. Therefore, we asked and we spoke this time to the President of the country, Bola Tinubu. Please, up your game, and safe lives.
