One of the Aid workers recently abducted has claimed that Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu has been killed by the Boko Haram sect.
This is according to a video released by the Boko Haram sect that showed the aid worker, identified as Grace appealing to the federal government and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to assist in securing her release.
She said she did not want to share the same fate with previous victims who were killed because no one came to their rescue.
Grace was among the workers who were kidnapped in Borno state last week.
She made reference to Hawa Liman, also an aid worker, and Leah Sharibu, a secondary school student kidnapped in Dapchi, Yobe state.
“The Nigerian government should please do something to see that we are released because this has occurred before… some ladies were caught, Hauwa and Ziphora, they also asked to be released but because Nigeria did not do anything about it, they were killed. I am begging on behalf of all of us here that please Nigerians should not allow 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,” she had said.
Action Against Hunger, the non-governmental organisation that Grace worked for before her abduction, has since confirmed the authenticity of the video.
Sharibu was among the 112 kidnapped from their school — Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state — by Boko Haram members on February 19, 2018.
While the others were later brought home, Sharibu, now 16 years old, was held back for reportedly refusing to denounce Christianity.
In August last year, a recording of her begging the president to come to her rescue and reunite her with her family, was released.
She had 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.”
