Leah Sharibu: Adeboye issues strong directive to RCCG pastors



General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday directed the church’s pastors to intensify prayers for the release of the only Daochi schoolgirl in Boko Haram’s custody, Leah Sharibu.

She was among female pupils if Governments Girls Secondary School, Dapchi in Yobe State that were kidnapped by the terrorist group in 2016.

All her classmates were released while she was Keith back for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.

Reports said she was forced into marriage to a Boko Haram commander and had delivered a child in captivity.

In the directive titled, ‘A Call for Release of Leah Sharibu,’ Adeboye said: “I, hereby again call and direct all pastors in the Redeemed Christian Church of God, all over the world, not to stop but to intensify their prayers for the release of Leah Sharibu.

I also call on every parent, all over the world, to use whatever influence they have, to ensure that Leah Sharibu, as well as other children in captivity are released.

We shall not relent in our prayers.”
