Reno Omokri, the former new media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has criticised Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for keeping quiet about the refusal of Boko Haram to release Leah Sharibu.

Boko Haram did not release Sharibu because she reportedly refused to denounce Christianity.

Omokri in a post on Twitter, said “Vice President @ProfOsinbajo, a Pastor, is quick to publicly speak lies against @GEJonathan and others. Yet this same man has not thought it wise to even say one word of comfort to the parents of Leah Sharibu and the Christian community who are in deep anguish over her ordeal!”

 

Adeboye rains curses on Boko Haram

Meanwhile, Pastor Enoch Adeboye rained curses on Boko Haram for refusing to release the Christian girl, Leah Sharibu.

The minister called on God to intervene and asked on Jesus Christ to set all kidnappers on fire.

“Isaiah49:25: But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.

“Every kidnapper in this country by whatever name they are called, please set them on fire right now in the name of Jesus,” he said.
