Bitrus Bwala, a lecturer at the College of Education in Gashua, Yobe state disclosed that Leah Sharibu is alive as he spoke from captivity in a newly released video.
The lecturer who spoke in video shared by Ahmad Salkida (a journalist known to have access to Boko Haram) begged President Muhammadu Buhari and the Christian Organisation of Nigeria (CAN) to help him and the other captives regain their freedom.
Bwala also confirmed the death of four out of five abducted aid workers of Action Against Hunger (AAH) who were recently killed by the insurgents.
“I am a principal lecturer with College of Education, Gashua, Yobe state. I was on my way to my station on the 27th of November 2019 that I was abducted.
“I appeal to the federal government to come to our aid. As you can see behind me are fellow Christians who were arrested on various points. I equally appeal to Christian association to do whatever is within their reach in order to rescue us because when we came, we saw some workers here, particularly workers with food organisation, however, shortly, they were executed.
“We also saw that the government has not done enough that is why Leah Sharibu is still with this group. We, therefore, appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari.”
