FG, Salkida know Leah’s whereabouts – Father

Nathan Sharibu, the father of the teenage Christian girl, Leah Sharibu, who was abducted by Boko Haram, has said the Federal Government and Ahmed Salkida knew his daughter’s whereabouts.

Sharibu told The PUNCH that though the latest revelation about his daughter now a mother was painful, he remained unfazed saying, “If that is the will of God. Then, I receive it with all pleasure”.

He said despite the psychological trauma occasioned by the news report of his daughter now being a mother, he did not let the report overwhelm him and stop from going to church today.

He, however, said he was saddened about the “conspiracy” over his daughter’s whereabout because neither the  Federal Government nor Ahmad Salkida, who allegedly broke the news, cannot claim not to know, whereabouts of Leah.

He said, “There is no qualms. I have been receiving lots of calls from last night but all I can say is it is well. If that is the will of God it is well. Whatever they have done I receive it with all pleasure. The government knows of Leah’s whereabouts. I repeat it the government knows Leah’s whereabouts, more or less Ahmed Salkida. The government knows about her whereabouts. But whatever it is, I don’t have anything more to say, than to receive it (the condition of Leah) with all pleasure”.

Ahmed Salkida, known for being the courier and media relations expert for the dreaded Islamist Boko Haram terrorist group, had revealed that Leah Sharibu, one of the abducted Dapchi School girls still under the captivity of the group, is now a mother.

Salkida, who is on exile in Dubai following accusations by the Nigerian military that he has ties with the Islamist sect, had made the disclosure to Reverend Joel Billi, President of the EYN, also known as Church of the Brethren. PUNCH
