Mother of Leah, the Christian schoolgirl abducted by Boko Haram, Rebecca Sharibu, has said she is ready to have any member of the Islamic terrorist group as a son-in-law if that will ensure the release of her daughter.
Rebecca, who said it did not matter if her son – in – law was an outlaw, added that what mattered to her was the safe arrival of her precious daughter.
She expressed disappointment with the Buhari administration’s unending negotiation for Leah’s release, describing it as a scam.
Leah has remained in Boko Haram enclave on account of her refusal to renounce her faith even after her fellow 109 abductees were released to their families a month after they were abducted.
She was the only Christian among the 110 schoolgirls abducted by the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) from their school in Dapchi, Yobe State, on February 19, 2018.
Leah Sharibu turned 17 last Thursday, May 14, and marked her third birthday in captivity.
