She is the only remaining of the schoolgirls kidnapped from Dapchi still with the terror group.

It is now almost two months since the Nigerian government negotiated the release of the 105 abducted Dapchi girls.

About 110 students, including Leah Sharibu, were abducted from the Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, after their school was attacked by the Boko Haram on February 19.

A month after their abduction, the Federal Government secured the release of 105 of the girls.

Sharibu, who would have been the 106th girl to be freed but, was left behind for refusing to denounce her Christian faith.

Speaking with the Premium Times on Sunday evening, her father, Sharibu Nathan, pleaded with government to ensure the safe release of his daughter.

He also thanked Nigerians, Muslims and Christians alike, for their prayers and called for more supplications to ensure the release of his daughter.

When Sharibu’s mother heard of her fate being the only girl from the Dapchi kidnap remaining in the Boko Haram custody, it was reported that she fainted and became unconscious from devastation about the issue.

Four days after the girls were abduction, President Muhammadu Buhari had promised to ensure the safe return of all the abducted students.

He also vowed that his administration would ensure the abductors of the Dapchi girls were apprehended and brought to justice.

“I also instructed the security agencies to deploy in full and not spare any effort to ensure that all the girls are returned safely, and the attackers arrested and made to face justice.”

We hope that Leah Sharibu will be rescued from the camp soonest.
