Don’t abandon Pastor Yakuru to be executed by Boko Haram – Shehu Sani tells Buhari
Senator for Kaduna Central in the Eight Senate, Shehu Sani has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to save abducted Pastor Bulus Yakuru from being executed by Boko Haram.
Yakuru was abducted from Pemi village, located approximately 20 kilometres from Chibok in Borno State in a Christmas Eve attack in which seven people were killed.
The Borno pastor said in a video released on Wednesday that he has been given until March 3 to live by his abductors.
He said he was in pain and would like to be reunited with his family members, church, and friends.
In the video, he appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari; the Governor of Borno State, Prof. Babagana Zulum and the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to help secure his freedom.

Reacting to Yakuru’s ordeal in a Sunday tweet, Sani called on the Federal Government to bring the pastor home.
“Even though we are overwhelmed with bandits abductions in the North West of our country, the government should intensify efforts and contacts to ensure that the abducted Chibok Pastor Bulus Yakuru is not executed by the terror group in Borno state,” Sani wrote.
