The parents of Leah Sharibu have stated they are tired of begging President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to help them get their daughter back after she was kidnapped by Boko Haram four years ago.
Leah Sharibu was one of 110 female students from the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College in Dapchi, Yobe State, taken by Boko Haram insurgents on February 19, 2018.
Nathan and Rebecca Sharibu claimed they were tired of speaking, sobbing, and appealing with a government that had remained deaf to every valid demand to free their daughter in an interview with Punch.
The parents, speaking through Dr Gloria Puldu, their spokesman, said:
“Thank you very much for your concern. Let me tell you how the family has agreed to spend this Christmas. They said they were tired of speaking, crying and pleading with the government of Buhari, which is deaf to every call.
So, it is agreed that they should remain silent and just call for continued prayers. They said they were tired of routine calls, which hurt so much that they had to just call on anyone who wished to stand with them to do so only in prayers.
We wish to respect the family’s wishes. We have only sent out Christmas greetings by calling for prayers.”
