- Leah Sharibu's mother has knocked President Buhari's administration over the abduction of her daughter
- 110 schoolgirls including Leah Sharibu were abducted from their school premises in Dapchi village of Yobe state in February 2018
- Rebecca Sharibu, however, alleged that the federal government is not committed to rescuing her daughter from captivity
The mother of Leah Sharibu, the only Dapchi school-girl remaining in Boko Haram captivity, Rebecca Sharibu, has doubted the commitment of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to securing the release of her daughter from Boko Haram terrorists.
The Nation reports that Sharibu, who spoke in an interview with the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in London, said she had serious doubt that Buhari was serious about securing the release of her daughter.
Legit.ng gathered that she, however, said she was in London to seek the assistance of the British government to free Leah from the terrorists’ captivity.
The report said that she is due to meet British prime minister on Leah’s predicaments.
According to Sharibu in the interview monitored by the newspaper in Kaduna on Thursday, February 27, the president did not contact their family until seven months after the abduction.
She also lamented after the president contacted her and sent three ministers, assuring her that Leah was going to be released soon, there has been nothing else from the president.
She, however, said it was against that background she decided to visit London to lay her complaints and seek the British government’s help.
According to her: “I have come to Britain to lay my complaints, I need their help. They should help me, I will like my daughter to be freed from captivity. My daughter was abducted among others by Boko Haram terrorists, it was seven months later that President Muhammadu Buhari called me.
”Since their abduction in February, it was seven months later that he called me. When he called me, he told me that my daughter would return, that she would not stay long. Two weeks later, he sent three ministers to our house and they corroborated what Mr. President had told me. The ministers reiterated that Leah would be returned to me, shortly.
“Because, I am seriously disturbed, but there is nothing I can do. If the government is doing nothing, what can I an ordinary citizen do?”
Sharibu commended a non-governmental organisation, Leah Foundation established in honour of her daughter, saying it had been of great assistance to the Leah family.
She also disclosed the foundation assisted the family towards making her trip to London a reality.
