Leah Sharibu: Parents confirm veracity of her voice in released audio

The parents of Leah Sharibu, the Christian girl held captive by Boko Haram insurgents, have confirmed that it is the voice of their daughter that is in the viral audio released yesterday.

Leah and other school girls were abducted at Government Girls Science and Technical College Dapchi. The others were released leaving her behind because she refused to renounce her faith.

In the message heard in the released audio, Leah made an appeal for her release from Boko Haram captivity.

The audio is translated thus:

“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.

“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.”

A reporter called Leah’s parents to confirm the veracity of the voice and both were in agreement that it is their daughter, Leah’s voice.

They said their hope has been re-iginited by the recent development having heard their daughters voice and seeing her recent picture.

“I can confirm to you that the voice that spoke is that of my daughter Leah. It is her voice no doubt. I am happy that I can hear my daughter speak. This has giving me hope that she is alive. I am also happy to see her recent picture displayed.

“My request is the same with my daughter. The government should play their part now by intensifying efforts to secure her freedom” her father said.

For the mother, her hope never died, though it has now doubled. She will however become happier the day her daughter is free.
