Leah Sharibu Family Attacked By Robbers…US Based Group Urges CAN To Reach Out To Them
The family of the only girl left in Boko Haram den faced yet another calamity yesterday when their house was burgled by suspected robbers.
According to a US Nigeria Law group, Leah’s Mother had just returned from dropping her only son at school for resumption only to discover the break in and theft of the families property including their generator set and food stuff. It is not immediately clear if Leah’s belongings were also stolen as she herself is in captivity and unable to verify.
Leah Sharibu, the only Christian among the abducted 119 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, is still being held by Boko Haram because she refused to denounce her christian faith.
It will be recalled that in April, the family also suffered bereavement with the loss of Leah’s grandmother’s brother which she remains unaware of being in captivity.
The family disclosed that almost 7 months after her abduction, no government official from local, state or federal tiers has reached out to them over their missing daughter.
The US based group urged the Christian Association of Nigeria to show love to the Sharibus by organizing a fundraising drive for them at this trying time.
