An American Pastor Abu Zacharia has taken a step of faith as he arrives Nigeria to rescue and replace teen girl, Leah Sharibu who was captured by Boko Haram and in their captivity  since February 2018.

Recall, the terrorist group on February 19, 2018, attacked the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College Dapchi, Yobe state where they reportedly kidnapped 110 young women of the school.

The sect members released 104 of the schoolgirls, while during the abduction, five of the girls reported died but Leah who refused to denounce her Christian faith was held back and since then she has been in their captivity.

The American missionary named Zachariah, who came with an American-based human rights advocate, Barrister Emmanuel Ogebe, revealed that this is his third time in Nigeria and in the last few weeks to negotiate the release of Leah.

Zacharia said he is keen to meet with Book Haram leaders so that he can replace Leah and set her free.

Zacharia said;

”I am here in Nigeria, my third trip in four months to negotiate the release of Leah Shuaribu with Boko Haram. What am offering to them is to exchange Leah for myself and I will go into their captivity.

So that is what am planning to do, once they find out that am here, I have already had one meeting with the government official, asking his assistance to have a meeting with Boko Haram. Wherever she is, am willing to go there and exchange myself.

The basic of this is John 15:13 in the gospel “Greater love has no man than a man lays down his life for his brother and his sister. So I am here to, with the permission of my wife of 41 years and five children and nine grand-children, to see if I can negotiate her release. And they will release her and take me instead. And that is my goal.

I have been doing full-time religious freedom work and international Christian humanitarian work in the war-zones. I have been to places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, Jordan, Gaza, Sudan and Cuba, among others.”
