Rebecca Sharibu, mother of Leah Sharibu who has been in Boko Haram captivity for years, has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is not serious about the release of her daughter. She therefore, traveled to London to meet the British Prime Minister.

“I come to Britain to lay my complaints, I need their help. They should help me ,I will like my daughter to be freed from captivity,” she said.

Rebecca spoke in an interview on the BBC Hausa service,monitored in Kaduna on Thursday.

She said after her daughter was abducted among others by the insurgents, it was 7 months later that President Buhari had called her.

“He told me that my daughter would return, that she would not stay long.Since their abduction in February, it was 7 months later. Two weeks later ,he sent 3 ministers to our house and they corroborated what Mr. President had told me.

“The ministers reiterated that Leah would be returned to me shortly. They said they were there to reassure me. But since that day, I never heard anything again from the government.”

Rebecca further said: “My major worry is  for the government to do whatever possible and free my daughter from captivity.”

“I’m seriously disturbed, but there is nothing I can do.If the government is doing nothing, what else can I do? Leah Foundation is helping us by sponsoring some girls  ,even my trip to London, they assisted. Recently ,we were assisted by them.”
