Buhari Won’t Rest Until Leah Sharibu Returns - Presidency

The Presidency yesterday said that President Muhammadu Buhari would not rest until the release of Leah Sharibu, the only Christian among the 111 school girls abducted from Government Girls Science and Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi, Yobe State.

Of the schoolgirls abducted on the February 19, 105 were released barely a month after the abduction. Leah Sharibu was held back by the terrorists for refusing to renounce her faith.

In an audio, Sharibu is heard pleading with President Buhari to have pity on her and save her from the captivity.

She also urged the President to assist her family.

Reacting via social media on Monday, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the Secret Service was analysing the audio.

He said: “We are aware of the audio in circulation concerning the unfortunate situation of our daughter, Leah Sharibu. In dealing with terrorists, nothing is too trivial.

“The secret service is analysing the voice. Our reaction will follow the outcome of the investigation.

“For President Buhari, nothing will be spared in bringing all our girls home. He will not rest until all of them are freed,” he said.
