Leah Sharibu Delivers again Under One Year
Leah Sharibu, the girl that was left behind after the February 1, 2018 capture of the Dapchi School girls has again given birth.
Leah who was 14 years at the time of her capture four years ago, has delivered of another child under one year.
This was made known by a United States-based group, US-Nigeria Law Group. The group who said that they are still looking into the incident, added that it was clear that the Nigerian Government has abandoned her in captivity.
Emmanuel Ogebe, convener of the US-Nigeria Law Group, lamented 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.”
Leah, was upon her capture, forced to renounce her Christian faith and accept Islam, but when she refused to comply, she was retained even after her mates were eventually released by the group.
