The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, at a press briefing in Ilorin, Kwara State, has the reports as absolute fake news.

He said the rumour of Sharibu’s death, which surfaced just a few days to the presidential election, is another ploy by the political opposition to tarnish the image of the administration and exploit primordial sentiments ahead of the polls. He said;

“I think it’s part of the opposition’s strategies to throw everything at the administration and at the President. I think everyday they are realizing the hopelessness of their position.

“Everyday they are amazed by the support Mr. President is receiving from every part of the country and they have decided that they are going to spread falsehood, inflame passion and make this election a Muslim-Christian affair or North-South affair, but people are not
listening to them,”

Leah was abducted alongside her classmates in Dapchi in February 2018. In March of the same year, the sect members released her colleagues but failed to release her because she refused to convert to the Islamic faith. She has been in Boko Haram custody since then.

    Let the government use her release at least as campaign strategy.

  4. She’s not dead, but she’s not found either! Lie lie Mohammed at it again. Just kindly release her to her poor parents since she’s still alive. This country self!
