Hundreds of people in the United Kingdom and the United States will today storm Nigeria’s Mission House in the United Kingdom and the Nigerian embassy
Hundreds of people in the United Kingdom and the United States will today storm Nigeria’s Mission House in the United Kingdom and the Nigerian embassy in the United States of America for prayer vigils as part of global concern for the 16th birthday anniversary of Leah Sharibu, one of the yet to be released 110 girls abducted from their school in Dapchi by Boko Haram over a year ago.
After spending 449 days in captivity, Leah Sharibu would be marking her 16th birthday today. Similarly, there would be activities in Abuja, Jos, Lagos, Yola and Port Harcourt in addition to other events by Panam Music World, John Praise Foundation for Human Development and Prof. Mercy Ade-Davies International Foundation to mark this auspicious day.
A statement by the UK group said: “Please join us to pray and protest from 1-1: 30 pm, the address is: 9 Northumberland Ave, Westminster, London WC2N 5BX. You can still speak up for Leah now.”
There would also be an event at the US Senate building on Capitol Hill today in Washington.
In a related development, pupils of primary schools in Jos had a peaceful march and at the same time praying for her safe return. The pupils drawn from different schools called on the Federal Government to secure schools so that innocent children are not made to suffer for things they know nothing about. Speaking at the mini-rally, the President of Leah Foundation, Dr Gloria Samdi-Puldu appealed to the Federal Government to honour its promises of freeing Leah from captivity
