Moments ago, Grace Taku, the aid worker kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists on July 18, claimed that Leah Sharibu alongside one Alice has been killed by the insurgents because of the Federal Government of Nigeria’s inability to “do something”.
Leah Sharibu was among the 110 Dapchi schoolgirls kidnapped from Yobe State by the insurgents. She was the only Christian schoolgirl who was not released by the terrorists after the Federal Government negotiated the release of others.
According to Grace Taku in a new video released by the insurgents: “my name is Grace, I work with Action Against Hunger, an NGO in Borno State; my base is Damasak. We went to work on Thursday, 18th July 2019. On our way going Back to Damasak by Keneri/Chamba ward, we were caught by an army called the Kaliphas and they brought us here. We don’t know where we are.
“I am begging on behalf of all of us. I don’t want such to happen to us and it also happened again with Leah and Alice, because Nigeria could not do anything about them, they were not released they were also killed.”
See how Nigerians are reacting to th news below….
This is sad. Really sad. Every life matters. I call on the Government to take this seriously and act swiftly to ensure all captives are freed and that cases of Leah Sharibu and others who are alleged to have been killed be investigated throughly. Enough is Enough. https://twitter.com/saharareporters/status/1154280198239608832 …Sahara Reporters✔@SaharaReportersReplying to @SaharaReportersAbducted Aid Worker In Borno Cries For Help In New Video@AsoRock @HQNigerianArmy @PoliceNG @MBuhari @NGRPresident @nassnigeria @acfusa @ACF_UK @ACF_Nigeria @ACF_EU1725:37 PM – Jul 25, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy137 people are talking about this

I can only hope she was asked to say this.
Probably Leah Sharibu is not dead yet…
Maybe not, maybe yes… Who’s gonna confirm this?

Rest In Peace Leah Sharibu.
You were an innocent child who was undeserving of the wickedness afflicted upon you.
You were abandoned by your govt when you needed help the most.
Nigeria has failed you.823:04 PM – Jul 25, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy96 people are talking about this

The news of Leah Sharibu’s death saddens the heart of all Nigerians. Nigeria as a nation failed her. A country that cannot offer something as basic as security to her citizens should not expect allegiance.176:28 PM – Jul 25, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacySee UCHENNA’s other Tweets
