The Para-Mallam Peace Foundation has reinstated its demand for the unconditional release of the kidnapped Christian schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu, who has been in Boko Haram captivity for 674 days.

In a statement titled “Re: Leah Sharibu – Christmas in Captivity 2,” the Founder/Convener of the group, Rev’d Gideon Para-Mallam, called on President Muhammadu Buhari alongside all stakeholders for concerted efforts toward her release and others in Boko Haram’s captivity.

The statement reads in part: “Christmas is a time of celebration but not for Leah Sharibu, the courageous Christian girl who will unfortunately be spending her second Christmas in captivity.

“Christmas is a period for family reunion, fellowship and celebration in Africa and indeed around the world. People are right now celebrating but not everyone can celebrate.

“How can Leah celebrate Christmas in captivity? How can Leah’s parents celebrate? How can those of us who yearn to see Leah freed celebrate?

“Feelers indicate that the Nigerian Government is trying but her efforts have so far fallen short. Leah is still in captivity nearly two years on. This is unacceptable with a government in place.

“The international community appears unconcerned about the plight of this 16-year-old innocent girl. Leah’s case is also human rights issue and remains a justice issue as her freedom of belief is being undermined because of her Christian Faith!”
