In about two months to the fourth year anniversary of Leah Sharibu’s abduction by Boko Haram terrorists, her parents have reportedly expressed disappointment in President Muhammadu Buhari for his inability to rescue their daughter.
About two months to the fourth-year anniversary of the abduction of Leah Sharibu by Boko Haram terrorists, her parents have expressed disappointment in the body language of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), towards her freedom.
According to reports, the couple, Nathan and Rebecca Sharibu disclosed this through the spokesperson for and Executive Director of the Leah Foundation, Dr Gloria Puldu.
Puldu reportedly stated that, “Thank you very much for your concern. Let me tell you how the family has agreed to spend this Christmas. They said they were tired of speaking, crying and pleading with the government of Buhari, which is deaf to every call.”
He added that, “So, it is agreed that they should remain silent and just call for continued prayers. They said they were tired of routine calls, which hurt so much that they had to just call on anyone who wished to stand with them to do so only in prayers.”
According to reports, Leah Sharibu was one of the 110 female students of the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, who were abducted on February 19, 2018, by Boko Haram terrorists.
It was also disclosed that, while others were released by the terrorists following negotiations, Leah, then 14 year-old, is still being held captive because she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
