Vanguard reports that Nathaniel Sharibu who is a police officer and a member of Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), said he has not received any word from Nigerian government about the whereabouts of her daughter.

“I really have nothing much to say now except that Leah is not yet back to join the rest of the family.

“Till now I have not heard anything and no authority has told me anything about the whereabouts of Leah. Only my loved ones were calling to congratulate me that my daughter is on the way home. But until now I have not seen anything yet,” he said.

Speaking on the health status of his wife, he said: "The mother is getting better now, knowing well that the nation and the whole world are praying for the safe return of her daughter. She fainted earlier when the daughter’s classmates were returned on Wednesday.”

Going further, the indigene of Hong council of Adamawa state, says the kidnap of his daughter has left him weak.

“I am feeling so sad and very weak. “Right now the school is not functioning. It’s very sad if we are going to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ without Leah.

“It will be very unfortunate but I know that with the prayers going on across the globe I believe she will join us before the Easter proper.”
