We’ll act after investigation! FG reacts to Leah Sharibu ‘help me’ audio

The presidency has reacted to an audio reportedly containing the voice of the only Christian girl among the students Boko Haram abducted from Government Girls Secondary School in Dapchi, Yobe State, Leah Sharibu.

In the recording, Sharibu appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to rescue her from the terrorists.

In a 35-seconds audio obtained by TheCable, Sharibu said, “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.”

Reacting to the development, the presidency, through a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, on Monday, said the president was aware of the audio recording and that the “secret service” was analysing it.

Shehu said the administration was focused on bringing back Sharibu and all other persons still in Boko Haram captivity.

He wrote, “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 analyzing 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.”
