Also, Aisha Kachalla, Leah’s friend, who was also abducted by the terrorists but was released, said she was worried about the whereabouts of Leah, who has been in continued detention by the terrorists.

“I often cry when I remember my friend Leah. I don’t know where she is. I don’t believe she is dead because there is no proof of her death. Her corpse has not appeared in any television station or newspaper,” Kachalla said.

Concise News had reported that Rebeca Sharibu had expressed hope that her daughter would return alive.

She said, “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.”
