Rebecca, the mother of the Dapchi schoolgirl held by Boko Haram, Leah Sharibu, has expressed hope that her daughter will return alive.
Concise News understands that this is coming after a viral video suggested that Leah has been killed by the terrorist group.
Speaking with newsmen, Friday, Rebecca urged the insurgents to release her daughter as she is only a little girl who does not deserve what she is going through at the moment.
“No matter how long it takes, my hope is still alive that my daughter will come back alive from Boko Haram. I still look forward to that day and I am confident that she will return,” she said.
“I also want to still appeal to the people that are holding my daughter to please have mercy on her and release her without any condition.
“She does not know anything. What has she done to deserve what she is going through?”
