The father of Leah Sharibu, Mr. Nathan, has confirmed that the voice in the recently released audio recording is the voice of his daughter, Leah.
Nathan who spoke with The Nation following the release of the audio on Monday, said that his daughter’s voice has rekindled the hope of his family.
“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 giving me hope that she is alive. I am also happy to see her recent picture displayed.
“My request is the same with my daughter. The government should play their part now by intensifying efforts to secure her freedom,” he said.
He further noted that his wife was very happy to hear her daughter’s voice, but would be however happier when she regains her freedom.
The Presidency had on Monday confirmed that the DSS was investigating the voice in the audio to ensure it was Leah’s.
