MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS ARE SONS OF ABRAHAM – BUHARI ON LEAH SHARIBU

AND SECURE RELEASE OF ALL CHILDREN AND CAPTIVES
OF TERRORISTS – PRESIDENT BUHARI
Dapchi, Muhammadu Buhari, President of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria makes the following statement:
“Two years ago, 110 innocent children from the town of
Dapchi were taken, against their will, by the terrorists of
Boko Haram. 107 survived the ordeal. Today all but one –
Leah Sharibu – are returned to their families.
“Now aged 16, Leah remains in the hands of the terrorists –
they say because she refuses to renounce her Christian
faith.
“We say, as the government for and of all Nigerians, that no
person has the right to force another to change their faith
against their will and that all life is sacred.
“This government continues and seeks to secure the release
of all children and captives of terrorists – and we do so
regardless of their creed or the name of their creator.
“As we redouble our efforts for Leah’s return, we can never
allow the terrorists to divide us – Christian against Muslim,
Muslim against Christian. We are all Sons of Abraham. And
all Nigerians have the same worth and rights before the law,
and before God”.
Signed:
Muhammadu Buhari,
President and Commander-in Chief,
Federal Republic of Nigeria,
Abuja.
