SWITZERLAND, JULY 27- Popular critic of the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government, Reno Omokri, has declared that Leah Sharibu is not dead, contrary to what is said in a viral video of abducted aid workers.
Sharibu, a Christian, is one of the schoolgirls kidnapped in Dapchi, Yobe State last year by Boko Haram terrorists.
Grace Taku, an aid worker kidnapped in Borno State on July 18, made a claim that the victim had been killed in a video released by the insurgents on Wednesday.
According to Grace, who works with Action Against Hunger, Leah and some other people were killed because of the inability of the Federal Government to save them.
Reacting on Friday, however, the former presidential aide in a Tweet @RenoOmokri, said the Christian girl was still alive and not dead.
“I’ve been informed by 2 journalists with access to Boko Haram that the faction claiming Leah is dead is NOT the one that abducted and holds her. I‘m told Leah is ALIVE. I put aside my differences with Gen @MBuhari and VOW not to oppose him going forward if he‘ll #FreeLeahSharibu”, he wrote.
