Christian teenage schoolgirl abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in 2018, Leah Sharibu, has delivered a baby boy in captivity.
Sharibu was among 110 schoolgirls abducted on February 19, 2018 by Boko Haram terrorists from Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State.
The President of Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (Church of the Brethren), Rev. Joel Billi, told Sunday Punch that he was informed of the development by prominent journalist, Ahmad Sakilda.
Sakilda is one of the few people who has access to the Boko Haram Terrorists.
Billi said he got the call from Salkida on the same day the journalist announced the execution of the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Rev. Lawan Andimi, by the Boko Haram Terrorists.
He told Sunday Punch: “Ahmed Salkida, whom I knew as a young boy when I was a pastor in Biu, called me to inform me that Andimi had been gruesomely murdered.
“I was also told by Ahmad Salkida that Leah Sharibu had given birth to a baby.
“I was devastated.
“I was staggering and almost fell down because I was shocked to hear that.
“I couldn’t absorb the shock because Leah Sharibu had become a symbol of the Christian faith.
“I consider her Christian faith stronger than even that of many church leaders.
“When I heard that Leah Sharibu was now a mother, I had to ask more than three times just to be sure.
“Ahmad Salkida said: ‘Leah Sharibu is now a mother.’”
