- Representatives of Chibok in Borno and Dapchi in Yobe have visited The Synagogue, the Church of All Nations for the release of Leah Sharibu and other students kidnapped by Boko Haram
- Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, in Burasari local government area of Yobe state was attacked in 2018 by suspected Boko Haram terrorists
- The general overseer, Prophet Temitope Joshua, assured them that there is nothing impossible in the sight of God almighty
Representatives of Chibok in Borno and Dapchi in Yobe on Sunday, April 7, sought spiritual help at The Synagogue, the Church of All Nations, at Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos to pray for the release of Leah Sharibu and other students kidnapped by Boko Haram.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the representatives who carried several placards told the general overseer, Prophet Temitope Joshua, that they were at The Synagogue because they had exhausted all human efforts to get the students released.
A spokesman of the representatives told Prophet Joshua that the father of Leah Sharibu could not come with them because he had been bedridden by stroke, as a result of the kidnap of her daughter.
He said they had been watching his ministry through Emmanuel Television (the church’s cable TV) and all the help he had rendered to the sick and the less privileged, hence their joint visit to plead for intercessory prayers for the release of the students.
The spokesman said they had no doubt that with the approval of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God could trigger the release of the remaining students kidnapped in 2014 and 2018.
Prophet Joshua told them that there was nothing impossible in the sight of the Creator of Heaven and Earth.
He urged the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel Television worldwide to pray and fast on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, this week, for the release of the remaining students.
He said that “there is nothing God cannot do” and urged all to see the prayer and fasting on the mentioned days as an assignment.
Legit.ng previously reported that the federal government of Nigeria denied reports making the rounds that Leah Sharibu, last of the Dapchi schoolgirls recently abducted by Boko Haram insurgents, has been killed by her abductors.
The denial was issued by information minister Lai Mohammed on Sunday, February 10 in a statement sent to Legit.ng. Mohammed said the reports claiming Sharibu was dead is “absolute fake news”.
The minister went on to accuse the opposition of wanting to score a cheap political point with the false reports.
