President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday had a telephone conversation with Mrs Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of the Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah, that splinter group of Boko Haram refused to release along with the others.

The call came one week after Mrs Sharibu jointly filed a suit with Daniel David Kadzai and a United States-based Lift-Up-Now Incorporation, a Non-Governmental Organisation, demanding for 500 million Naira from the government as a compensation for the indignities and human deprivations suffered by Leah since her abduction in February 2018. 

Apparently to calm her nerves, President Buhari called her and gave her and gave her loads of assurances.

Leah was Kidnapped in February by a splinter group of Boko Haram and was held back when other girls were returned to Dapchi because she allegedly refused to renounce her Christian faith.

In the phone call with Mrs Sharibu, President Buhari assured her that his administration would do everything it would take to bring her daughter back home.
