Leah Sharibu has been killed by Boko Haram, abducted aid worker says (Video)

According to an aid worker abducted by Boko Haram, Leah Sharibu has killed by the terrorist group because of the Federal Government of Nigeria’s inability to “do something”.

Grace Taku, who was abducted on July 18, says Leah was killed alongside another hostage identified as Alice.

Leah Sharibu was among the over 100 Dapchi schoolgirls kidnapped from Yobe State by the insurgents on February 19, 2018.

She was the only Christian schoolgirl who was not released by the terrorists after the Federal Government negotiated the release of others.

Taku made the claim in a new video released by the insurgents and posted by Sahara Reporters.

The transcript of her appeal reads: “My name is Grace, I work with Action Against Hunger, an NGO in Borno State; my base is Damasak. We went to work on Thursday, 18th July 2019. On our way going Back to Damasak by Keneri/Chamba ward, we were caught by an army called the Kaliphas and they brought us here. We don’t know where we are.

“I want to beg the Christian Association of Nigeria because I am the only Christian among the six of us here. I want to beg that CAN should please do something about me to see how I can be released. I call on Borno State.

“I beg Action Against Hunger. We have families, some of us have children. We are Nigerians who are working for Nigerians. I am begging please, I am begging again, please do something to see that we are released because this has happened in the Red Cross before where some ladies were caught, Hauwa and Zipporah. They also asked to be released but because of Nigeria did not do anything about it, they were killed.

“I am begging on behalf of all of us. I don’t want such to happen to us and it also happened again with Leah and Alice, because Nigeria could not do anything about them, they were not released they were also killed.”

President Muhammadu Buhari had in July restated his commitment to ensure Sharibu and other abductees reunite with their families.

He had said: “We want to reassure the affected families and friends that this administration will not relent in its efforts to bring back all the remaining girls including Leah Sharibu, who has become a postal child for the heinous activities of Boko Haram insurgency.

“We will reunite them with their families and friends by the Grace of God.”
