Leah Sharibu, who is regarded as “heroine Christian” schoolgirl, has been reported to have given birth to a second child in captivity.
Leah was among the 110 girls, who were abducted by terrorists from Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state on the 19th of February 2018.
Leah was forced to renounce her Christian faith and accept Islam before being married off to a top Boko Haram commander.
All these while, she has remained in captivity, and a United States-based group, US-Nigeria Law Group, has lamented on her plight, while reporting her second child delivery.
While speaking on behalf of the group, Emmanuel Ogebe stated that “despite an offer by an American pastor last month to surrender himself in exchange for Leah’s freedom, there has been no tangible response from her captors.
“Notwithstanding, intelligence received on the status of Leah indicates that she has delivered a second child in captivity. While we have not corroborated this by multiple sources, a usually knowledgeable source indicated that she delivered a second child late last year. This means both children were born in 2020 as the terrorists announced her childbirth earlier in 2020. We are still investigating this.”
