The mother of Leah sharibu, the only surviving Dapchi Girl in the hands of Boko Haram has sent her greetings to the president re-elected.
She sent the greetings from Dapchi during a phone interview with Newsmen. She added that the president should not forget her child as he celebrates the victory.
Rebecca Sharibu has also entreated the Boko Haram insurgents who are still holding her daughter in captivity to release her unconditionally, she also reminded Mr. President to fulfil his promise to rescue her daughter from the insurgents.
“I am grateful to all Nigeria who participated in the election. We are also grateful that the election was peaceful. From the beginning, people felt that there will be problem but it didn’t happen. We are also happy that the President won the election. On behalf of myself and my family, we congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari and pray for God to give him the desired wisdom to rule the country.
“I want to remind the President that, as he celebrates his victory, he should not forget that Leah is still in the hands of Boko Haram. As for me, my heart is heavy because I have not seen my daughter for more than one year now. I am calling on the President to fulfill his promise of freeing my daughter from the hands of Boko Haram. My cry is still the same, today and tomorrow until I see my daughter.
Boko Haram should please know that we have been subjected to psychological torture and trauma since my daughter was taken away. Please have mercy on my daughter (broke into tears),” Mrs. Sharibu said.
The Nation recalled that Leah, along with other over 100 girls were whisked away from their hostel at Government Girls Science Technical College Dapchi by Boko Haram on the 16th Febuary, 2018. While her mates were released a month later and other died, Leah was however held back by the insurgents on the allegations that she refused to denounce her Christian fate.
Though the Federal Government has consistently promised to rescue the girl, it is now over a year that the promise has not come to fulfilment.
