Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has charged the Federal Government (FG) and Global Christian Community (GCC) to place serious consideration on the rescue of Leah Sharibu, the abducted Dapchi school girl captured by Boko Haram terrorists in Yobe State.
The President of PFN, Rev. Felix Omobude, called on international Christian communities to join the search so that negotiations and release of Leah may be made possible and quick.
Omobude said “The PFN is considerably worried why it’s taking the government such a long time to secure the release of Sharibu. We urge the Buhari-led government to do the needful to reduce the tension her continuous detention against her will is generating among the Christians in Nigeria and their well-wishers.”
Amnesty International (AI) has however commended the FG over the trial of suspected Boko Haram terrorists, describing the action as “good progress for the justice sector”.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the commendation was contained in a letter addressed to the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN), by the Country Director of AI, Osai Ojigho.
