Mother of kidnapped Leah Sharibu, Rebecca storms the US White House to seek help releasing her daughter.
A video reveals that the mother of kidnapped Leah Sharibu, Rebecca paid a visit to the US White House in attempt to get the government’s attention towards securing the release of her daughter who was abducted by terrorists, alongside 111 other girls and a schoolboy, on February 19, 2018 in Bursari local government area of Yobe state.
Leah was kidnapped two years ago at the age of 14. Although the terrorists released 107 of the 113 originally abducted on March 21, 2018 while five of the remaining six girls were reported to have died while being transported to Boko Haram’s hideout. Leah Sharibu was kept by the militants because she refused to renounce her Christian faith and convert to Islam.
Sharibu is still reportedly in the custody of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction that broke from Boko Haram in 2016.
Sharibu, who was also threatened with execution, was allowed to send an audio message to the government to secure her freedom.
“I am calling on the government and people of goodwill to intervene to get me out of my current situation.
“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,” she pleaded.
Despite cries from her family and different Christian groups, Leah has is still in captivity and the government is yet to secure her freedom.
