Mr. Nathan Sharibu, the father of Leah Sharibu said the family has surrendered the fate of their daughter in the hands of God.

Mr. Sharibu to news report that Leah has delivered a baby boy to a Boko Haram Commander after staying in their captivity for more than two years now.

The news was broke over the weekend that Leah has delivered a baby boy to a top Boko Haram Commander.


A journalist Ahmed Salkida who has maintained close professional confidential ties with the insurgents also confirmed on his twitter handle on Sunday that Leah is now a mother but he was not sure of the sex of the child. His Tweet reads:

Why, I wonder, do we pretend that leaving Leah behind won’t result in pregnancy? Since the terror group announced condemning her to slavery, is there any step or collective focus on preventing similar occurrences? She’s a mother, but I don’t know about the gender of the baby.

Mr. Sahribu who conformed reading the report on the net when our reporter contacted him also added that, “I don’t have to say anything again.

We have left whatever is happening to Leah in the hands of the Almighty God. Before, they told us she was dead. Now they are saying she has delivered so we don’t have anything to say. Let God do His will in her life,” Mr. Sharibu said.

The Nation reports that Leah along with her school mates was abducted by suspected Boko Haram insurgents on February 19, 2018, at their hostel at Government Girls Science Technical College Dapchi, 100km away from Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.
