Nigerians Call On Federal Government To Intervene Speedily Over Leah Sharibu’s Captivity.
This is as Naija News reported yesterday how Boko Haram terrorists belonging to the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), killed an humanitarian worker Saifura Ahmed.
The Cable published a video where the deceased was wearing a white hijab. She was shot from behind.
The insurgents claimed that they had contacted government over the captives but did not get any response.
They said “We contacted the government through writing and also sent audio messages but the government have ignored us. So, here is a message of blood,” said a spokesman of the group who did not give his name.
Adding that “The other nurse and midwife will be executed in similar manner in one month, including Leah Sharibu.”
In series of Tweets, Nigerians lamented what they described as delay by the present administration in getting Leah Sharibu released, while also suggesting that the federal government should use the method it used in releasing the other girls to rescue Leah as well.
In the tweets below, Nigerians blame Federal government over Leah Sharibu’s continued captivity.

What’s the present government doing to ensure Leah Sharibu is released? The little girl has gone through enough trauma, her family has gone through enough trauma. It seems all of a sudden The Presidency ain’t taking insurgence serious anymore.

One worker has been killed.

Saifura Ahmed Killed! 😔 😢 😡
Few days ago, I reminded this Government about those health workers held captive by BH from Rann IDP camp.
Now it is clear that Govt abandoned them, no negotiation is ongoing. All of them are on their own, including Leah Sharibu.
I am gutted!

“We don’t negotiate with terrorists”
Bullshit. Whatever that was done to bring all the other girls back should be done for Leah Sharibu.

May Leah Sharibu find her way back home. May God direct the people in the position to facilitate her release to do so by His special grace. Ameen.

Leah Sharibu, May God be with you.
I just recalled that I had a dream about this terrorism and how scared I felt.
I can only imagine what she’s going through now. God please help.
