Dapchi girl’s mother laments, says I can’t sleep over Leah’s detention



Leah and her mother

Mrs. Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of the Dapchi girl who is yet to be released by the Boko Haram insurgents, has said she has lost her sleep over her Leah’s abduction and that she nearly had heart attack when 107 girls were released but her daughter was detained.

“It’s not been easy but the grace of God is there for us. I cannot sleep since February 19 that they were abducted but I nearly had a heart attack the day the other girls were released and I discovered that my daughter was not released because she refused to renounce her faith. But that gives me some comfort,” Mrs. Sharibu told Punch.

Leah was reportedly detained when she refused to deny her Christianity faith when Boko Haram asked her to convert to Islam.

Reacting to her daughter’s boldness, Mrs. Sharibu said Leah was taught the sound Christian teaching which she cannot just slay from, adding that, “She grew up in ECWA and she assimilated the teachings of the Church. So, I have no problem with her refusal to convert. I am proud of her.”

The distraught mother therefore appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and the security agents to help in securing her daughter’s release, praying for God intervention

“Buhari should come to my aid and not abandon Leah. He should do everything possible to ensure her safe and timely release.”

Also reacting to the incidence, the Parents of the released Dapchi schoolgirls, also called on the Federal Government to do more to secure Leah Sharibu’s release. She is the only girl remaining the den of the terrorists

On his part, Mallam Bukar Kachalla, the Secretary of the Dapchi Girls’ Parent Association, urged the government to deploy strong intelligence and negotiate to release Leah the way the did it for the release of the 107 girls.

“If the Federal Government can facilitate the release of 107 of our girls, it will take them less energy to secure the release of Leah Sharibu.

“We condemn the religious colouration being painted in the issue of Leah. We are all united as parents and our association is still intact and our message is ‘bring back Leah to us.’

Kachalla further noted issue at hand is not about religion, but all the community is concerned about is Leah’s freedom from Boko Haram on time and safely.
