Leah Sharibu Speaks From Captivity, Begs Buhari To Save Her

Leah Sharibu, the only Christian girl among the abducted 119 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state left has spoken from her captivity asking President Muhammadu Buhari to save her from captivity.

All the girls who were captured were subsequently released, except five who reportedly died in detention, but Sharibu was held back for “refusing to renounce her faith”.

Amidst speculations on her fate, TheCable obtained her latest picture as well as the audio of her plea to Buhari where Leah, who was kidnapped in February, also appealed that her family members be assisted.

Dressed in hijab, sewn from a light brown material and seated alone on a mat patterned in pink, Sharibu spoke with measured calmness.

She spoke in Hausa in a 35 seconds audio saying:

“I am Leah Sharibu, the girl that was abducted in GGSS Dapchi. I am calling on the government and people of goodwill to intervene to get me out of my current situation,” she said.

“I also plead to the members of the public to help my mother, my father, my younger brother and relatives. Kindly help me out of my predicament.

“I am begging you to treat me with compassion, I am calling on the government, particularly, the president to pity me and get me out of this serious situation. Thank you.”
