Leah Sharibu is one of the girls that was abducted by Boko Haram from Dapchi, Yobe State, some months ago and she is still in the custody of the terrorist group.

Her continued captivity had been linked to her refusal to renounce Christianity and accept the religion of the terrorist group which many have largely said is not true Islam. 

There have been many calls for her release, but nothing seems to be happening. 

Reno Omokri, an aide to a former President, Goodluck Jonathan, had written a book on Leah Sharibu and he is using it to raise money for her family.

On Wednesday, Dr. Jonathan shared a post by Omokri, announcing the donation of 1 million Naira by Apostle Johnson Suleman in response to an appeal in the purchase form for the book.

Mr Omokri said he had passed the money to the parents of the girl who are in Yobe and are asking the government to make more efforts to secure the release of their daughter. 

"Please join me in thanking Apostle Johnson Suleman who today made a generous donation of ?1 MILLION after my appeal in my latest book, Leah Sharibu: The Girl Boko Haram Left Behind, which I immediately passed on to Leah Sharibu’s parents (they received the money in less than 10 minutes).

"Please get this book to support the Sharibu family. Profits from the book go to Leah’s family," the message shared by former President Jonathan read.

Nigerians are already raising concerns about the security of the parent's life now that the money is coming in.

Will the terrorists use Leah as a bate to request for money from her parents?

There are also concerns that it could pose further danger for the family now that kidnapping is on the increase.
