• Leah Sharibu Gives Birth To Second Baby

A United States-based group, US-Nigeria Law Group, has expressed displeasure over the plight of the abandoned Dapchi “heroine Christian” schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu, with the latest report coming in that she has given birth to a second child in Boko Haram captivity.

Boko Haram: Leah Sharibu Gives Birth To 2nd Baby In Captivity

Leah Sharibu, who was abducted three years and five weeks since her abduction in Dapchi, Yobe State, is still believed to be in captivity of the terrorists.

Recall that the abducted girl was forced to accept Islam before being married off to a top Boko Haram commander after she refused to renounce her Christian faith.

She was among the 110 girls, aged between 11 and 19 years, which the terrorists abducted from Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, on February 19, 2018.

However, the Convener of the US-Nigeria Law Group, Emmanuel Ogebe, 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,” Ogebe said.
