The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has led the Federal Government’s delegation to visit the mother of Leah Sharibu, Rebecca in Dapchi, Yobe State.

The federal government said it had employed both formal and informal channels to secure the release of Leah Sharibu and others in captivity of Boko Haram insurgents.

The minister gave the assurance on Friday when he led a three-member Federal Government delegation to Maiduguri in Borno State and Dapchi in Yobe State.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari sent the delegation as a follow-up to his phone call to Leah’s mother a few days ago, adding that the government will not rest until Leah has been reunited with her family.

“Government is doing everything possible to ensure that Leah Sharibu and the two aid workers are not hurt and they are returned safely to their families,” he said.

“We are appealing to them using both formal and informal channels to spare the lives of these innocent people.

“Mr. President is not leaving any stone unturned to ensure the safe return of Leah Sharibu and all others in captivity, ” the minister said.
