Mrs Rabecca Sharibu, mother of the only Dapchi schoolgirl still in Boko Haram captivity has narrated how she reunited with her daughter, Leah Sharibu in dream. Daily Trust quoted her as saying Leah appeared to her midnight in red dress, hugged her with a smile and said: “I finally got my freedom Mama”. Rebecca recalled that in the trance, her daughter explained what she’s going through. She said: “We hugged each other very tight in such a way that no force can saparate us before. “Leah told me: Mama I really suffered in their hand. We use to sleep on leaves and barely take bath. but, they fed me well.
“That minutes of excitement nearly took away all my sorrow. Sadly, it was a dream. I cried when I opened my eyes and realized it was a dream. “I tried going back to sleep for more discussion but I couldn’t. I cried throughout that night and pray that God should make it a reality”. On whether she would allow Leah to continue in the school, Rabecca replied, “She rather stay out of school than returning to GGSTC Dapchi. I already transferred her brother to a school in Jos. She is the only one I am waiting for now”.
Rebecca lamented that no official from the federal, state governments or the school has visited again to sympathize with her. “It’s very sad and frustrating each time we hear something from the media about our daughter. Recently, government said that negotiation for my daughter’s release is complicated. “As parents, we should be informed of any development before going to press. The government’s attitude of relaying the information is making me angrier and more frightened by the day. Each time a story like this come up,” she said
The mother said that since the release of the abducted schoolgirls, only one of them ‘Aisha’ had visited. “She told me that many of them wanted to come but they don’t want see me crying. Her best friend Liana usually call me on phone to ask about Leah but has not came to visit me”, Rebecca added.
