The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has called for the release of the Christian pupil Leah Sharibu who has been in the captivity of Boko Haram terrorists.
In a statement titled, ‘A Call for Release of Leah Sharibu,’ Adeboye directed all RCCG pastors all over the world to intensify their prayers for Sharibu’s release.
“I, hereby, again call and direct all pastors in the Redeemed Christian Church of God, all over the world, not to stop but to intensify their prayers for the release of Leah Sharibu. I also call on every parent, all over the world, to use whatever influence they have, to ensure that Leah Sharibu and other children in captivity, are released. We shall not relent in our prayers,” he said.
