Nigerians react in shock and disbelief to news of Leah Sharibu’s ‘death’

Bayo Ajibola

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.”

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.

So Leah Sharibu has been killed. This irresponsible govt promised to rescue her but did nothing because she is a christian.

May her soul rest in peace. Amen904:51 PM – Jul 25, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy52 people are talking about this

When I saw Leah Sharibu trending, I had only one question in my mind “has she been released?”

Only to see this video of Grace Taku, an abducted aid worker calling for help and saying Leah Sharibu & Alice Loksha have been killed by boko haram. 43:52 PM – Jul 25, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacySee .♛. #BBNaija’s other Tweets

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.

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
