– Leah Sharibu’s mother has called on President Buhari to secure the release of her daughter from Boko Haram terrorists
– She says her saddest moment was waking up from a dream about her daughter being freed
– Mrs Sharibu further confirmed that it was her daughter’s voice that was heard in the audiotape released recently by the terrorists
Mrs Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of Leah Sharibu, the only Dapchi schoolgirl still in Boko Haram captivity, has once again called on President Muhammadu Buhari to take action and rescue her daughter.
She made the call in an interview with Punch, at the headquarters of the Church of Christ in Nations, Jos, during the second anniversary of the Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association.
NAIJ.com gathers that the distraught mother said her saddest moment was when after expressing joy and happiness that her daughter had been freed, she woke up, only to find that she had been dreaming.
She said: “I am Rebecca Sharibu, mother of Leah Sharibu. I have only two children, Leah Sharibu and Donald Sharibu who is in SS1. My husband works in Yola as a civil servant but I am a primary schoolteacher in Dapchi.
“The absence of Leah has affected my life because we have always been feeling very bad.
“We have been feeling very bad and our lives have not been the same because of the absence of my daughter. My plea to President Muhammadu Buhari is that he should take action to bring back my daughter, Leah.
“My daughter has been taken and held captive since February 19, 2018. I have faced trauma since. But I had a dream last month (August) that my daughter was freed and she returned home.
“I was very happy and overjoyed that Leah came back, but only to wake up and realised that it was all a dream.
“That was my worst and saddest moment; I felt very bad and started crying again because it was a dream and not reality. I believe that one day and by God’s grace, Leah will be back.”
She further confirmed that it was her daughter’s voice that was heard in the audiotape released recently by the Boko Haram sect.
She said: “Yes, I can confirm that the audio voice that was released last time was the voice of my daughter, Leah Sharibu. We were at home and she was in school with her colleagues.
“We did not know what happened but only heard that Boko Haram members arrived at our place and abducted them.
“We went to the school the next day and saw nobody. The report we got was that their captors took away 110 students, including my daughter, Leah Sharibu.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, spoke up about Leah Sharibu in a recent chat with the media.
The popular actress said it will be a very sad situation if the anything bad happens to the young girl.
