The parents of Leah Sharibu have called on President Bola Tinubu and his wife, Oluremi to assist in facilitating her release as she clocks 21 in Boko Haram captivity.

The insurgents have continued holding on to her seven years after her abduction.

Arise News reports that Leah Sharibu was one of the 110 female students of the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, who were abducted on February 19, 2018, by Boko Haram terrorists.

While others were released by the terrorists following negotiations, Leah, then 14 years old, is still being held captive because she refused to renounce her Christian faith.

The Spokesperson of her parents President of LEAH Foundation, Dr. Gloria Samdi Puldu, in a statement on Tuesday wishes Leah a Happy Birthday wherever she is and prayed that God manifests His presence in her life.

She said, “It is a very sad day for the parents and the entire family to still be wishing their daughter a happy birthday in captivity, what a shame on the nation that has refused to rescue Leah Sharibu.

“We continue to urge the Nigerian government to please do the needful and ensure that Leah Sharibu is released from her captivity, her crime is that she boldly and courageously refused to deny her faith in Jesus Christ. All others who were abducted from the same school were released when Government of then President Mohammadu Buhari negotiated for their release and Leah was held back by the Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorist because of her faith.

“Yet the then administration kept making false promises that Leah will regain her freedom but failed to do so till they left office. We collectively again on behalf of the parents of Leah Sharibu demand her release from the current President Tinubu’s administration.

“We specifically on this day call on the mother of the nation Her Excellency Sen. Remi Tinubu to come to the rescue of Leah Sharibu and get her back into the arms of her sorrowing parents who on a daily basis endure pain over the captivity of their daughter.
