A presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, has sent a tongue-lash as a reply to Reno Omokri over Nigeria's security situation.

Both prominent Nigerians have given each other an earful on the whereabout of Leah Sharibu, a captive of Boko Haram insurgents.

Omokri, who was an aide to a former Nigerian president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has challenged Shehu to spend a night in some northern regions (Koshobe Kware) without security and get a reward of $20000.

Omokri went as far as saying President Muhammadu Buhari's aide can get the money afterwards from Dele Momodu, a renowned journalist and businessman.

Meanwhile, President Buhari had been urged to take advantage of Boko Haram's current weakness to secure the release of Sharibu and the remaining Chibok girls still in captivity.

The appeal was made on Saturday, April 11, by the Northern Christian Elders Forum (NOCEF), in an Easter message by its chairman, Engr Ejoga Inalegwu.

According to the northern elders, the release of the captive and the remaining Chibok girls who were still in Boko Haram's custody would be the greatest gift from President Buhari's administration.
