Reno Omokri, a former aide of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has written a book about Leah Sharibu, one of the Dapchi schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram.
Sharibu was the only Christian among the 112 kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents from Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state.
While the others were later brought home, Sharibu was held back for refusing to denounce Christianity.
Omokri’s book about the incident is titled ‘Leah Sharibu: The Girl Boko Haram Left Behind’.
“You will be shocked at the great cover up by the Buhari administration when you read this book,” Omokri said about the publication which is available on Amazon.
He added: “Leah Sharibu will not be forgotten as long as I am alive. What she is going through may be similar to what Malala Yousafzai went through, but when you look deeper into it, her ordeal is even worse.
“Malala was attacked because her advocacy for education. Leah is in captivity because of her loyalty to God through Jesus. The world needs more people like Leah, a conscience driven individual who has the courage of her convictions.”
According to Omokri, the objective of the book is to “apply pressure” on the government in a bid to facilitate Sharibu’s release from captivity.
He said Apostle Johnson Suleman has donated N1 million to Sharibu’s family, adding that they will also receive profits from the book.
Omokri said he visited Dapchi and spoke with Sharibu’s mother while conducting research for the book.
His last book, which became an Amazon bestseller, was titled ‘Facts versus fiction: The true story of the Jonathan years, Chibok, 2015 and the conspiracies’.
