Pastor E.A Adeboye has responded to the news of a 15-year old heroine of faith, Leah Sharibu who is still in Boko Haram captivity due to her refusal to renounce her Christian faith.

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor E.A Adeboye has reacted to the refusal of Boko Haram terrorist to release Leah Sharibu, the only Christian among the schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Dapchi town, Yobe State on February 19.

While the insurgents released the other 101 girls on Wednesday, they held on to Sharibu because she refused to forsake her faith and embrace Islam when she was asked to.

In a tweet sent out via the official Twitter handle, the General Overseer, RCCG, prayed that “Every kidnapper in this country by whatever name they are called, please set them on fire right now in the name of Jesus.”

“Lord, we ask that you visit the camp of the captors and in a way that You alone can, see to the safe release and return of the missing girl Leah Sharibu in Jesus name.”

Pastor Adeboye had earlier expressed Holy anger when the girls were abducted in February praying God to release them from their captors, prayed again yesterday for her peaceful rescue.
