Abducted Nigerian Christian Schoolgirl Leah Sharibu Gives Birth to Her Second Child While in Boko Haram Captivity

According to the US-Nigeria Law Group, Leah Sharibu has given birth to her second child while in Boko Haram captivity, both of whom were born in the year 2020. 

“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,” reported the US-Nigeria Law group.

On February 19, 2018 at 5:30 pm, Boko Haram kidnapped 110 schoolgirls from the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College located in northeast Nigeria. After a month of negotiations between the Nigerian government and Boko Haram, 104 out of the 105 girls left alive were released from captivity and returned home to their families. The jihadist militant terrorist group Boko Haram kept one girl, 14-year-old Leah Sharibu, who remains in captivity today due to her refusal to deny Christ and convert to Islam. For the past three years she has been held hostage and deemed a “slave for life” by her captors.

Leah has not been allowed any access to family or friends for the past three years. She has likely been forced to learn Islamic rules and Arabic as the group tries to force her to change to their beliefs. They have also likely used physical torment and mental attacks to try and break her faith in Christ. These kinds of tactics, to include beatings, brainwashing, drugging and sexual abuse have been commonly reported from women who have escaped Boko Haram captivity.
