They're not mine! Fayose claims EFCC sealing houses belonging to 'innocent' people in Ekiti

The former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has charged the Federal Government to ensure the release of Leah Sharibu, one of the 110 girls abducted by Boko Haram.

Fayose who gave the call while celebrating Miss Sharibu’s 16th birthday said he joined the world and what he termed lovers of peace to call on the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the release of Leah Sharibu.

In a tweet posted on his verified account, the former governor wrote: “As Leah Sharibu marks her birthday in captivity today, I join other Nigerians and lovers of peace in the world to urge the FG Govt to ensure her release. God will sustain her and her family members.”

Recall that Leah Sharibu was abducted by Boko Haram insurgents on the night of February 19, 2018 alongside her schoolmates from Government Science College, Dapchi in Yobe State.
