Leah Sharibu’s Mother makes an emotional plea for her daughter’s release
Mrs Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of the Christian Dapchi Girl, has appealed to the Federal government to do everything it can to ensure the fast release of her daughter, Leah Sharibu, from Boko Haram captivity.
The sect members held on to Leah after she refused to denounce her Christian faith.
In an interview with the Nation, Leah’s mother said her daughter sent a message to her that her family should pray for the will of God to be done in her life. Mrs Sharibu went into coma after her daughter and the remaining 109 girls were kidnapped by the sect members on February 19th. She has however regained conciousness but is still in a very sober mood.
“The released girls told us that the insurgents insist that my daughter must denounce her religion. But she told them she has no single knowledge of Islam and can’t be. She was then left out of the Dapchi trip on the condition that any day she accepts Islam she will be released. Leah, we were told was left with three other Boko Haram women there and she sends message that we should pray for the Will of Gods to be done in her life”the distraught mother said
She appealed to the Federal government to ensure her daughter is released soon.
“So I plead that Government and the negotiation team should revisit the terms of the agreement to enhance the release of my daughter. Everybody has his religion and no one should be compelled to practice a religion he or she never wishes to”.
Bishop appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to facilitate Leah’s release
”The biggest litmus test for President Buhari and the APC government in this Dapchi girls saga is the case of Leah Sharibu, the only kidnapped Dapchi girl yet to be released by Boko Haram,” Badejo told reporters.
”Leah, on the evidence of her colleagues, was not freed because she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
“Anyone who thinks this is just a Christian problem will be making a big mistake,” he said.
“No amount of accolades will suffice to congratulate the girl and her parents who nurtured her to be that strong in her faith as to demonstrate such courage.”
