It has come to our notice that some groups and individuals have been spreading the FALSE NEWS that Leah Sharibu has been released and currently in Jos.For the avoidance of doubt, I hereby wish to categorically state that LEAH SHARIBU HAS NOT YET BEEN RELEASED. Our consistent hope and prayer is that she should be released as soon as possible.
I’m issuing this statement as a very close friend of the Sharibu family who has been and is still in very close contact with them; that as at this evening 6:50pm (18:50pm) October 4th, 2018, these wild and misleading reports about her release are FALSE and SHOULD BE DISREGARDED.
Please let us continue to pray for Leah and her release, her family and Nigeria as a whole. Thank you and God bless.
The Revd Gideon Para-Mallam’
