OPM is known for its humanitarian and charity works notable as the only church to build and run free schools in Nigeria where pupils are given free uniforms, books and fed twice daily.

The Ondo State chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has also demanded the immediate and unconditional release of Leah Sharibu.

Ayo Oladapo, Ondo CAN Chairman said in a statement issued in Akure and obtained the press on Thursday that the decision of the Boko Haram group to hold on to Sharibu after the release of the other kidnapped Dapchi girls showed that their battle is against the Christians in Nigeria.

Leah and other school girls were kidnapped three weeks ago from their school in Dapchi, Yobe State. All other captives have been freed except her.
