Leah Sharibu, one the 119 students of the Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe State, kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists in February has spoken out from captivity.

The abducted girl can be heard in an audio recording published bt TheCable on Monday begging that President Muhammadu Buhari come to her rescue.

Leah, speaking in Hausa in a 35 seconds audio, said:

“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,” she said.

She also appealed to members of the public that her family members be assisted.

“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.”

Leah was kidnapped in February alongside 119 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state.

All the girls who were captured were subsequently released, except five who reportedly died in detention, but Sharibu was held back for allegedly refusing to renounce her Christain faith.
