Parents of Leah Sharibu, one of the Dapchi schoolgirls kidnaped by Boko Haram in 2018, have pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to keep his promise of rescuing her. Nathan and Rebecca Sharibu urged the Nigerian president to genuinely feel their pain and assume their daughter to be his.

What’s the Latest on Leah? In January 2020, Alice — a Christian aid worker also kidnaped by Boko Haram — said that Leah “is alive and doing well.” Her father told the BBC that, since authorities had not spoken to them since October 2020, he could not confirm reports that Leah had converted to Islam and had a child for one of her abducted.
