Leah Sharibu, the only Christian among the abducted 119 students of Government Girls Secondary School, GGSS, Dapchi, Yobe state, has made a passionate appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to save her from Boko Haram captivity.
Leah, who was kidnapped in February, also appealed that her family members be assisted.
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”.
Dressed in hijab, sewn from a light brown material and seated alone on a mat patterned in pink, Sharibu, according to TheCable, spoke with measured calmness in Hausa in a 35 seconds audio.
She said, “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.
“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.”
