Leah Sharibu, the Christian schoolgirl who Islamist terrorists abducted has been forcefully remarried after she abandoned her first ‘husband’ which she was also forcefully married to.
Leah, who has now spent five years in terrorists’ captivity, was one of the 110 female pupils of the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, abducted on February 19, 2018, by the Boko Haram terrorists.
Since then, she has been held in captivity by members of Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), with reports on Wednesday, September 27th, 2023, now saying she is remarried to another ISWAP commander in the Lake Chad area, named Ali Abdallah.
One of the security sources cited by SaharaReporters said: “Leah was first married to Abdulrahman after she allegedly converted to Islam and they have two children, all boys named after two Boko Haram commanders that were killed.
“We don’t know what transpired but Leah secured the divorce and married another commander, Ali Abdallah.
“Leah was trained to administer some medical services to injured Boko Haram fighters and women.
“She was trained as a medical personnel and now leads the ISWAP medical team in the northern part of the Lake Chad area.”
Another source said: “Ten days ago, Leah, her supposed husband and other fighters were sighted at Dogon Chukwun kangarwa.
“Her husband is a commander under ISWAP but they are facing persecution from a Boko Haram commander loyal to Shekau, Malam Bakura.
“As of today, we got a report that a large contingent of the ISWAP fighters has started migrating from the area through the Guzamala forest.
“They were sighted on the route of Cross – Mosquito camp- Garin-giwa (where the Zulum’s convoy was attacked) – Munguno – Gajiram with a cache of dangerous arms.”
