A report sighted on SaharaReporters, a Nigerian online news website, by YaahooJournalist, quoted a source who is familiar with Leah’s situation, to have said that the abducted Christian girl gave birth to a baby boy.
The report said Leah was delivered of the baby a few weeks ago following her forceful marriage to a top Boko Haram commander, a reliable source close to the terror group told SaharaReporters.
YaahooJournalist understands that the report quoted the source to have said that Leah, who refused to renounce her Christian faith, was forced to accept Islam before being married to a top commander of the terror group.
Meanwhile, YaahooJournalist reports that Leah was the only Christian among the 110 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, northern Nigeria, abducted on February 19, 2018.
While other girls were released by the insurgents following Federal Government’s intervention, Miss Sharibu was allegedly held back on account of her alleged refusal to renounce her Christian faith and has since been in Boko Haram’s captivity.
