Leah Sharibu, a Christian girl kidnapped and held in Boko Haram captivity for over one year, has given birth to a baby boy for a top Boko Haram commander whom she was forced to marry after converting to Islam.
Leah is the only Christian among the 110 school girls abducted by the the Boko Haram terrorist from the Government Science Secondary School, Dapchi, Yunusari Local Government Area of Yobe State, on February 19, 2018.
All other Dapichi school girls abducted with her had been released except Leah who was aged fourteen at the time of her capture.
Leah was reportedly not released along with the other children, because she refused to convert to Islam.
It has been gathered that Leah was delivered of a baby boy after being forced to marry a top Boko Haram commander who lives outside Nigeria.
Daily Trust quoted a reliable source close to the terror group, saying Leah was delivered of the baby early Saturday in Niger Republic.
The source said Leah, who refused to renounce her Christian faith, was forced to accept Islam before being married to the top commander of the terror group.
He added that the insurgents had wanted to release her few months ago but couldn’t because she was pregnant.
