The Foreign Secretary spoke to Vice President Osinbajo on 26 February and extended an offer of additional UK assistance following the abductions from Dapchi. The Prime Minister also raised the Dapchi abductions with President Buhari on 16 April. The Government of Nigeria has said they are making all efforts to secure Leah's release. We continue to call for the release of all those abducted by Boko Haram – including the remaining Chibok girls. Attacks on schools and abductions of children are abhorrent and must stop.
