Alhaji Lai Muhammad the Minister of Information and Culture has reported on Sunday that people should debunk the news that Miss Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi Secondary School girl whom the terrorist Boko Haram sect has refused to release after abducting her and over 100 others, is dead.
Alhaji Mohammed who described the report as fake, accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of being behind the fake report. He said it is only one of the ploys deployed by the PDP to smear the image of the President Muhammad Buhari led government, especially as it is coming just few days to the general election.
Alhaji Mohammed said this through his spokesman, Segun Adeyemi, during in a press briefing in Kwara state on Sunday. Recall that Miss Sharibu abducted alongside other female students from the Dapchi secondary school in the month of March, 2018.
The Boko Haram terrorist who freed the other girls however refused to set her free on grounds that she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
President Muhammadu Buhari has, however, on several occasions, promised that his administration would secure the safe release of the girl.
