Nigerians React To Claim Leah Sharibu Is Dead, Presidency Keeps Mum

Nigerians on social media are reacting to claims by Grace Taku, an aid worker abducted by Boko Haram terrorists that Leah Sharibu, the only Dapchi schoolgirl in Boko Haram, captivity is dead.

Taku made the revelation in a video released by the insurgents in which she called on the Federal Government of Nigeria not to abandon her as they abandoned Leah and Alice which resulted in their deaths.

The Federal Government has yet to react to the claim.

A Nigerian on Twitter, @FakhuusHashim, said, “Leah Sharibu has reportedly been killed by Boko Haram. A tragedy! Leah was the only girl left behind during the rescue of Dapchi girls. May her soul find peace! The Nigerian state has failed her.”

@Thedabigal  wrote, “We as human and as a country failed Leah Sharibu. This news, if true, is heartbreaking. We are just a bunch of people living in a failed system and with zero humanity.”

@Nonso_ tweeted, “I don’t know what’s worse, people politicizing Leah Sharibu’s death or those calling her a martyr. She was a child, a child full of promise.  The least we could do at this moment is to pay our condolence. She didn’t deserve this. Nobody deserves this. I hope she is finally at peace.”

@DrChiemeziem said, “Hearing that Leah Sharibu has been killed in captivity breaks my heart. Some of the things Buhari has gotten away with were things y’all crucified Jonathan for. Now, where’s the outrage? Y’all are silent? As expected. Keep it up.”

Some Nigerians questioned the efforts the Federal Government claimed to have put into rescuing her.

@MartinsAniobi said, “What effort did the retired man of God, Professor Yemi Osinbajo put to facilitate her release? Buhari has failed Nigerians. If Osinbajo had a conscience, he would resign. RIP Leah Sharibu.”

@hand2ome tweeted, “Nobody holds Buhari responsible for anything. Nigeria is a wicked place. I pray this news of Leah Sharibu is false.”
