The United Kingdom on Wednesday offered to help the Federal Government find Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu, who is still believed to be held captive by the Boko Haram.
The 15-year-old is being held by terror group Boko Haram because she allegedly refused to renounce her Christian faith, reports an online medium, Premier.
The medium reported that on Wednesday in the House of Commons, Tom Brake, the MP for Carshalton and Wallington, asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions his department has had with the Nigerian authorities regarding the fate of Leah.
Harriett Baldwin, Minister of State for Africa at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, was quoted to have said that the Foreign Secretary spoke to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on 26th February and extended an offer of additional UK assistance following the abductions from Dapchi.
She added: “Attacks on schools and abductions of children are abhorrent and must stop.
