With the alleged killing of the abducted ‘Christian’ Dapchi school girl, Leah Sharibu, that pushed many Nigerians into mood disorder yesterday, the former social media aide to President Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri, Thursday went into investigation to verify the authenticity of the story.

The story after his investigation turned negative, as two journalists whom he (Reno) believes have access to the Boko Haram faction that kidnapped Leah, conspicuously told him that Leah is alive.

Recall that an international charity group, Thursday declared that six of its aid workers who were kidnapped in Borno State, Nigeria, last week have appeared in a video, renewing fresh concerns for safety of Leah Sharibu and Alice Loksha, a UNICEF worker. The group, Action Against Hunger, said the six aid workers, comprising of one staff member, plus drivers and health workers employed locally, were “apparently in a good condition of health.”

In the alleged video, a woman who was surrounded by five men, believed to be her colleagues pleaded with the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, the federal government and the international community to assist in their release to avoid what happened to earlier aid workers, including Alice and Leah Sharibu.

In view of this, the outspoken Reno went into investigation to unravel the truth. “I’ve been informed by two journalists with access to Boko Haram that the faction claiming Leah is dead is not the one that abducted and holds her. I‘m told Leah is ALIVE. I put aside my differences with General Muhammadu Buhari and vow not to oppose him going forward if he‘ll free Leah”, he said via tweeter.

It would be recalled that Buhari had on October 3, 2018, called Leah’s mother on phone and promised to bring back Leah and other abductees.

Reiterating his commitment towards the release of Leah and other abducted Dapchi secondary school girls, Presidency through the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu opined that “The Presidency has been briefed by the responsible government agency about the disturbing video showing our citizens, the humanitarian aid workers held captive.

“ Presidency has been given assurances that contact is being made and the captors are being talked to. “Besides these aid workers, there are some others about whom this engagement is about-Leah Sharibu, a religious leader and all the others.

“These discussions have been ongoing even before this time and what this latest incident has done is to bring urgency to the efforts that the secret service is making. “Government is making contacts, in the hope that the captors will see reason to not visit hardship or even harm on these innocent individuals. Government is working.”
