This comes on the backdrop of an October deadline given to the Federal Government of Nigeria by Boko Haram to act to save Leah Sharibu’s life.
Rebecca spoke at a press conference held at the national headquarters of the Nigeria Fellowship of Evangelical Students.
According to her, “I am here on behalf of my family, particularly me and my husband to plead with the entire world, most especially the Federal Government, President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, to please do whatever they can to ensure that Leah is released.
“A threat has been sent out that with effect from October 2018, Leah Sharibu would be next in line to be killed. I am pleading with the Federal Government to do whatever they feel should be done to release Leah before the expiration of the ultimatum.
“Monday (today) will be October 1. It is our desire that anybody that can do anything to free Leah should do that. We thank the entire world, most especially Nigerians for standing with the family and for their prayers on our behalf.
We heard that some persons have taken the Federal Government to court, but we are not aware and have not taken the Federal Government to court. My family didn’t take the Federal Government to court. I’m not aware of it and I did not send them. I am not after money; all I want is my daughter to be released.”
