The Boko Haram insurgents abducted Leah and over 100 students from the Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe State in February last year. Others have been released except Leah.

There is nothing like that”. He said the rumour of Miss Sharibu’s death, which surfaced just a few days to the presidential election, was another ploy by the political opposition to tarnish the image of the administration and exploit primordial sentiments ahead of the polls.

I think everyday they are realizing the hopelessness of their position. “Everyday they are amazed by the support Mr. President is receiving from every part of the country and they have decided that they are going to spread falsehood, inflame passion and make this election a Muslim-Christian affair or North-South affair, but people are not listening to them,” Alhaji Mohammed said.
