Chibok Girl, Leah Sharibu Divorces Her First Husband, Marries Another Terrorist Commander
Leah Sharibu, the Christian schoolgirl who was kidnapped by members of Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) has “remarried” another terrorist commander, after purportedly securing a divorce from the first husband she was forcefully given to.
Leah was abducted alongside her over 100 schoolmates from Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State on February 19, 2018.
A few years ago, it was reported that the Dapchi girl was married off and is now a mother.
Local security sources at the Daily Trust disclosed that, following an alleged divorce from one Abdulrahman, Leah had been married to a different ISWAP Commander in Lake Chad named Ali Abdallah on Tuesday September 26, 2023.
“Leah was first married to Abdulrahman after she allegedly converted to Islam and they have two children, all boys that were named after two Boko Haram commanders that were killed,” the source said.
“We don’t know what transpired but Leah secured the divorce and married another commander, Ali Abdallah.”
The source said after her abduction, Leah was “trained” on how to administer some medical services to injured Boko Haram fighters and women.
The publication reports that one of the antics of terrorists in the North East is forcing their captives with expertise in some areas like medicine, nursing, engineering, and computer, among others to train their members in such areas.
“She’s been trained as a doctor and now leads the ISWAP medical team in the northern part of the Lake Chad region,” the source said.
According to another source, Leah, her supposed husband and other fighters were seen at Dogon Chukwun kangarwa ten days ago.
“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 cache of dangerous arms,” he said.
