Popular Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has expressed hope in Leah Sharibu’s return, one of the kidnapped Dapchi school girls who is yet to be released by Boko Haram.
Omotola added that she would be said if anything bad happens to Leah, urging authorities to find her and bring her home.
She said, “It is very sad, especially as I read something (about her) recently. I do not know if it is true, but someone from the Presidency said that it is only God that can help her now.
“I am not very sure because sometimes there are false news reports on the internet. If it is true that was said, then that is very sad for this country. It does not matter if she was a Christian or a Muslim neither does it matter if she was a boy or a girl, the fact is that a Nigerian child is involved and she is innocent. We all have children.
“They are just about to start their life and they do not have any fault in what Nigeria has become today. Imagine a child who is below 18 years of age facing such things. Nigeria is supposed to protect its children.
“How do we sleep every day knowing that we have the power to do something but we are not (doing it)? I do not understand how we investigate things in Nigeria. I do not see how difficult it is to find her.
The actress warned about peoples non-challant attitude of Nigerians and authority about the girl, expressing worry that there might not be any protest against her abduction.
Omotola further said, “I just want people to have the fear of God; that is if they truly believe He exists and if they don’t, they should know that they have children too and they do not know when karma would come for them. They should find that girl and bring her home.”
The multi-award winning actress Omotola just added another feather to her cap as she bagged an Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards as Best Actress in Drama/TV Series.
Meanwhile yesterday Reno Omokri, a former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, staged #FreeLeah Sharibu protest in front of Nigeria’s High Commission in London with CSW, an NGO to marks 200 days she has been held by Boko Haram for refusing to convert to Islam.
