Mrs Aisha Wakil, popularly known as Mama Boko Haram, has promised to work in partnership with the International Committee of Red Cross to secure the release of Leah Sharibu from Boko Haram captivity.

“I am really worried about Leah and her freedom from Boko Haram is very important to me. Leah did not renounced her religion, that i can assure you and we shall do everything with both the government and the international orgamisation to ensure she regain her freedom just like her colleagues that were reunited with her families.
She said that the her foundation would also partner with ICRC to empower widows and rehabilitate under aged girls engaging in commercial sex activities.
