Bitrus Bwala, a lecturer at the College of Education in Gashua, Yobe state, has revealed via a video from captivity that Boko Haram captive, Leah Sharibu, is still alive.
In the video which was shared by Ahmad Salkida (a journalist known to have access to Boko Haram), Bwala begged President Buhari and the Christian Association of Nigerian, CAN, to help secure his release and that of other captives.
“I am a principal lecturer with College of Education, Gashua, Yobe state. I was on my way to my station on the 27th of November 2019 that I was abducted.
“I appeal to the federal government to come to our aid. As you can see behind me are fellow Christians who were arrested on various points. I equally appeal to Christian association to do whatever is within their reach in order to rescue us because when we came, we saw some workers here, particularly workers with food organisation, however, shortly, they were executed.
“We also saw that the government has not done enough that is why Leah Sharibu is still with this group. We, therefore, appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari.”
