Toblerone, a Swiss chocolate company, has joined the call to ensure the release of Leah Sharibu, one of the students kidnapped in Dapchi, regional government area (LGA) in Yobe state, more than two years ago.
Sharibu and 109 other female students, most of whom were later released, were abducted at their school in February 2018 after rebel Boko Haram attacked and drive them away from their hostel.
When the government’s efforts to secure their release bore fruit, the rebels then arrested Sharibu, who was then 14 years old, for refusing to renounce his Christian faith.
On Friday, Reno Omokiri, former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, visited his Twitter page to share pictures of Toblerone’s chocolate while asking Nigeria to retweet amid efforts to intensify advocating his release.
Can you please help retweet and comment on this specially made Leah Sharibu chocolate @Toblerone from Switzerland, so the world will know that you support Leah, and that she is not forgotten? Leah we love you and pray for your deliverance!#FreeLeahSharibu #RenosNuggets pic.twitter.com/9W0prwGnGU

In July 2019, Sharibu was allegedly killed, with Grace, a kidnapped aid worker, pleading from Boko Haram detainees that he did not want the same fate as the previous victims – referring to Sharibu and Hauwa Liman – “who were killed because no one had come. to save them. “
But the federal government has denied the claim, maintaining that he is still alive and that is true do everything he can to secure his release. In January, he reportedly suffered give birth when in captivity.
“I wonder if we pretend to leave Leah won’t result in pregnancy?” Ahmad Salkida, a journalist with access to guerrillas, has said while talking about his welfare state.
“Since the terror group announced it condemned him as a slave, is there a collective step or focus to prevent similar incidents? She’s a mother, but I don’t know the sex of the baby. “
