Leah Sharibu Reportedly Gives Birth To Second Baby In Boko Haram Captivity

Nigerian young girl Leah Sharibu has reportedly given birth to her second baby in Boko Haram captivity after she was abducted for more than three years.

The young Christian school girl was abducted along side other school girls three years ago from Government Girls’ Science and Technical College Dapchi, Yobe State by Boko Haram terrorists group.

Recall that Leah Sharibu, who is still held captive by Biko Haram, was forced to accept Islam after she refused to denounce Christianity. She was later married off to a top Boko Haram general.

Emmauel Ogebe, a convener of the US-Nigeria Law Group, said in a statement 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.

“That 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,”

To commemorate the March 21 third anniversary of the release of the Dapchi girls returned by their captors and “abandonment of Leah Sharibu”, the US group, in its commemorative statement, said.
