Miss Leah Sharibu, the only Christian girl among the abducted 119 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to have mercy on her and ensure her release from Boko Haram from captivity.
In an exclusive report by TheCable, as a “proof of life” amidst speculations on her fate, Leah, clad in hijab, sewn from a pink material and seated alone on a mat patterned in orange, spoke with measured calmness, appealling that her family members be assisted.
She spoke in Hausa in a 35 seconds audio, reproduced here:
“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.”
