Reno Omokri has advised Nigerians not to jump to conclusion over the news of Leah Sharibu’s alleged death.
The news was shared by an aide worker who was abducted by Boko Haram, the same terror group which abducted Leah Sharibu.
Reacting to the revelation made by the aide worker, Grace Taku, Reno Omokri tweeted:
“I watched Boko Haram’s video in which one of the abducted aide worker, Grace Taku, alleged things about Leah Sharibu’s state of life. DON’T JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS. I am trying to verify her claims. A journalist with access to Boko Haram DOUBTS the claim. But I’m still investigating”.
Meanwhile, the Presidency have reacted to the news of Leah Sharibu’s alleged death as stated by the abducted worker.
A statement by Senior Special Adviser to President Buhari, Garba Shehu, reads:
“Actin Against Hunger aid workers video.
The Presidency has been briefed by the responsible government agency about the disturbing video showing our citizens, the humanitarian aid workers held captive.
Presidency has been given assurances that contact is being made and the captors are being talked to.
Beside these aid workers, there are some others about whom this engagement is about-Leah Sharibu, a religious leader and all the others. These discussions have been ongoing even before this time and what this latest incident has done is to bring urgency to the efforts that the secret service is making.
Government is making contacts, in the hope that the captors will see reason to not visit hardship or even harm on these innocent individuals”
