Released Dapchi schoolgirls

“President Buhari is conscious of his duty under the constitution to protect all Nigerians, irrespective of faith, ethnic background or geopolitical location and will not shirk this responsibility,” presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu said on Thursday in Abuja.

“The President is equally mindful of the fact that true followers of Islam all over the world respect the injunction that there is no compulsion in religion.

He said no group can force its religion on another, adding that President Buhari’s heart “goes out to the isolated parents who must watch others rejoice while their own daughter is still away (in captivity). The lone Dapchi girl, Leah, will not be abandoned.”

Leah who is a Christian, was reportedly detained by the Boko Haram because she refused to convert to Islam.

Further speaking, the President assured the Sharibu family that he would continue to do all he could to ensure that they also had cause to rejoice with their daughter soon.
