The Parents of Leah Sharibu, the only girl still held captive by Boko Haram insurgents amongst other school girls abducted at Government Girls Science and Technical College Dapchi have confirmed the voice from an audio message from, The Cable as that of Leah, their daughter.
The Nation online reached out to Leah’s parents to confirm the veracity of the voice and both were in agreement that it is their daughter, Leah’s voice.
Both Mr. Nathan Sharibu and his wife Rebecca said that their hope has been re-ignited by the recent development having heard their daughters voice and seeing her recent picture.
“I can confirm to you that the voice that spoke is that of my daughter Leah. It is her voice no doubt. I am happy that I can hear my daughter speak. This has given me hope that she is alive. I am also happy to see her recent picture displayed.
“My request is the same with my daughter. The government should play their part now by intensifying efforts to secure her freedom” Nathan said.
For the mother, her hope never died, though it has now doubled. She will however become happier the day her daughter is free.
Like her husband, Mrs Sharibu also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to without delay swing into action to free her daughter.
She also called on her daughter’s captors to unconditionally release her daughter to her so as to save her from the trauma she is going through.
Leah along with her schoolmates was abducted in February from their school. Her mates were however released after one month but Leah was held back by the insurgents for the reason that she refused to renounce Christianity, her faith.
