Toblerone, a Swiss chocolate firm, has joined calls to secure the release of Leah Sharibu, one of the schoolgirls kidnapped in Dapchi, a local government area (LGA) in Yobe state, more than two years ago.

Sharibu and 109 other female students, most of whom were later released, had been abducted in their school in February 2018 after Boko Haram insurgents struck and whisked them away  from their hostels.

As government efforts to secure their release yielded results, the insurgents had thereafter held back Sharibu, who was 14-year-old at the time, for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.

On Friday, Reno Omokiri, an ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, took to his Twitter page to share a picture of the custom made chocolate by Toblerone while charging Nigerians to retweet amid efforts to intensify the advocacy for her release.
