Nathan and Rebecca Sharibu, parents of the only Dapchi schoolgirl remaining in Boko Haram captivity, Leah Sharibu, have reminded President Muhammadu Buhari of his promise to rescue their daughter.

Leah, a Christian, was among 110 female students of the Government Science Secondary School, Dapchi in Yobe state who were abducted on February 19, 2018, by Boko Haram.

The insurgents released all Dapchi schoolgirls after a month, except for Leah who refused to renounce her Christian faith.

Daily Trust reports that Leah's parents made this known in an open letter to the Nigerian leader three years after her abduction.

According to them, Buhari had promised that their daughter would be released because negotiations were going on.

However, two years after the telephone conversation nothing has changed and Leah still remains in Boko haram captivity.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the federal government stated that Boko Haram terrorists deliberately refused to release Leah in order to divide Nigerians along the lines of religion.

Her case, in particular, attracted unprecedented local and global attention, owing to the fact that others were released, while she was detained for reportedly refusing to renounce her Christian faith.

However, Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s minister of information and culture said that the terrorists know that holding Sharibu captive might cause religious tensions in the country.
