Mrs. Rebbeca Sharibu, mother of the abducted Dapchi secondary schoolgirl Leah Sharibu, is still hopeful about her daughter’s return alive.
Mrs. Rebbeca Sharibu expressed hope of her daughter’s return while reacting to a video released by Boko Haram where an abducted aid worker, Grace Taku, called on the authorities, to rescue her before she is “killed like other abductees like Alice and Leah Sharibu”.
According to Mrs. Sharibu, “no matter how long it takes, my hope is still alive that my daughter will come back alive from Boko Haram. I still look forward to that day and I am confident that she will return”.
Mrs. Sharibu revealed that she had not even seen the video in circulation.
She reiterated her call to President Muhammadu Buhari to do everything to rescue her daughter, just as she also appealed to the people holding her daughter in captive to release her unconditionally. Her words:
“I am bothered by the recent silence about my daughter’s case, but I still want to cry to the President. I want our President Buhari to know that my eyes are still wet with tears over my daughter’s abduction. I will continue to cry to him, until my daughter returns to me.
“I also want to still appeal to the people that are holding my daughter to please have mercy on her and release her without any condition. She does not know anything. What has she done to deserve what she is going through?”
KanyiDaily had published the video released by Book Haram where Grace Taku, who wore a blue hijab, pleaded with the authorities that she doesn’t want to be killed like the previous aid workers who were caught, but abandoned by Nigeria.
