Leah Sharibu to her mum: 'Mama, I finally got my freedom"

Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of Leah Sharibu, the only abducted Dapchi school girl still in Boko Haram captivity, has disclosed that her daughter appeared to her in a dream. 

Mrs Sharibu said in a report by Daily Trust that her daughter appeared to her at midnight, wearing a red dress, with a huge smile on her face, and gave her a hug. 

The distraught mother narrated that in the dream, her daughter said to her, “I finally got my freedom, Mama.”

She quoted Leah as saying further: “Mama, I really suffered in Boko Haram’s hands. We sleep on leaves and barely take baths, but they fed me well.” 

According to Mrs. Sharibu, when she woke up and discovered that she had been dreaming, she was very sad. 

She said: “Yes, we hugged each other very tight in such a way that no force could separate us, before narrating her ordeals to me. 

“Those minutes of excitement nearly took away all my sorrow. 

“Sadly, it was a dream. I cried when I opened my eyes and realized it. I tried going back to sleep for more, but I couldn’t. 

“I cried throughout that night and prayed that God should make it reality.” She said her daughter will not be returning to her school in Dapchi when she regains her freedom; and lamented over the fact that since the incident occurred, no official from the state or federal governments, or even the school principal, had visited her home. 

She stated: "I’ve already transferred her brother to a school in Jos. She is the only one I am waiting for now.

“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 way of relaying the information is making me angrier, and more frightened by the day.” P

It was however reported previously that Leah Sharibu had made an attempt to escape from the camp of the insurgents but failed. 

Leah, the only Christian among the 110 abductees, was found in the bush and was returned to the terrorists three days after. Her mates said she was emotionally strong enough to send her mother a present as a remembrance. 

It was reported that the present was the jerry can she and her friends were given milk in, by the man who thwarted their escape, according to Naij.com
