Rebecca, mother of the abducted schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu has revealed that her daughter appeared to her in a dream.
Leah was kidnapped, alongside over 100 others, earlier this year by Boko Haram insurgents in Dapchi, Yobe State.
While others were released by the terror group, Leah was held back due to her refusal to renounce her Christian faith.
And her mother, Rebecca has admitted to having a traumatic experience since her daughter was captured.
Speaking over the weekend in Jos, the Plateau State capital at the second anniversary of the Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association, she called on President Muhammadu Buhari to help secure her daughter’s freedom.
Narrating the dream, she said she was excited that her child had finally regained freedom from her captors only to wake up and find out she was dreaming.
“The absence of Leah has affected my life because we have always been feeling very bad,” she told Punch.
“We have been feeling very bad and our lives have not been the same because of the absence of my daughter.
“My plea to President Muhammadu Buhari is that he should take action to bring back my daughter, Leah.
“My daughter has been taken and held captive since February 19, 2018. I have faced trauma since.
“But I had a dream last month (August) that my daughter was freed and she returned home. I was very happy and overjoyed that Leah came back, but only to wake up and realized that it was all a dream.
“That was my worst and saddest moment; I felt very bad and started crying again because it was a dream and not reality. I believe that one day and by God’s grace, Leah will be back.”
Continuing, she said “the audio voice that was released last time was the voice of my daughter, Leah Sharibu.
“We were at home and she was in school with her colleagues. We did not know what happened but only heard that Boko Haram members arrived at our place and abducted them.”
