Leah Sharibu, the only #DapchiGirl left with her abductors, has spoken out from confinement.
Leah was one of the 110 girls abducted by the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a breakaway faction of Boko Haram, in February.
104 of the girls from the Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi had been released with 5 said to have died while in captivity. Only Leah was left in confinement, allegedly as a result of her refusing to renounce Christianity.
The Cable has obtained a “proof of life” – an audio recording and a photo – of the abducted girl, begging that President Muhammadu Buhari come to her rescue.
Listen to Leah speak for the first time in a while.
I am Leah Sharibu, the girl that was abducted in GGSS Dapchi. I am calling on the government and people of goodwill to intervene to get me out of my current situation.
I also plead to the members of the public to help my mother, my father, my younger brother and relatives. Kindly help me out of my predicament. I am begging you to treat me with compassion, I am calling on the government, particularly, the president to pity me and get me out of this serious situation. Thank You”
