Dapchi schoolgirls: Release Leah Sharibu now, PFN tells Govt

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has charged the federal government to use all its might to effect the release of the last Dapchi school girl still being held, Miss Leah Sharibu from the captivity of the Boko Haram terrorists.
PFN in a press statement endorsed in Benin City by its National President, Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude, said the federal government must act quickly to free the only remaining Dapchi School girl unhurt.
The Boko Haram terrorists last week freed over 100 Dapchi school girls they abducted in February, this year and held back Leah for refusing to convert from Christianity to Islam.
“What Leah Sharibu is going through has further confirmed our worries that the activities of the Boko Haram and killer herdsmen have religious undertone. These kind of things should not be happening in a free and democratic nation like Nigeria. It is really unacceptable.
“We also call on her captors to release her unconditionally. The federal government must ensure her release just like the other girls”, the PFN stated.
The PFN press statement further called on the international friends of Nigeria to help facilitate the safe release of Leah Sharibu to rejoin her family.
The PFN, which admonished all Christians in the country to continue to offer fervent prayers toward the freedom of the Christian girl, urged Nigerians to respect the right of freedom of worship of others and be tolerant.
