“I can confirm to you that the voice that spoke is that of my daughter Leah. It is her voice, no doubt. I am happy that I can hear my daughter speak. This has given me hope that she is alive. I am also happy to see her recent picture displayed. My request is the same with my daughter’s. The government should play their part now by intensifying efforts to secure her freedom,” Mr Sharibu said.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, revealed via his Twitter handle on Monday, that the government had assigned the DSS to investigate, after the recording was published.
“We are aware of the audio in circulation concerning the unfortunate situation of our daughter, Leah Sharibu. In dealing with terrorists, nothing is too trivial.

“For President Buhari, nothing will be spared in bringing all our girls home.
He will not rest until all of them are freed,” he tweeted.
