A 22 year old aid worker from Plateau State, Miss Jennifer Ukambong, who was released on Thursday has given an update on Leah Sharibu’s where about.
Miss Jennifer Ukambong who as released after being held hostage in Boko Haram captivity, revealed that Leah Sharibu is somewhere close to Lake Chad.
Leah was the only Christian among the 110 Dapchi schoolgirls kidnapped from Yobe State by Boko Haram on February 19, 2018.
Ukambong said, “They ( Boko Haram) told us it was against the Qur’an to forcefully touch a woman not legally married to you.
“They, however, tried to prepare our minds to expect such should they decide to keep us as slaves.
“According to them, the Qur’an gives them the right to such privileges when they take a hostage as slave.”
Ukambong also said Mrs Alice Ngaddah, Miss Grace Taku and Leah Sharibu who were abducted at various times by the terrorists were all “doing fine in the forest.”
Ukambong who said she went to Ngaddah’s house twice in the forest insisted that both she and Leah were not dead.
She said, “Alice, in fact, told us that she (Leah Sharibu) is fatter than she was when she was abducted. We went to her house (in the forest) twice
“Yes, she (Sharibu) has a house there…I don’t know the location but they say it is close to Lake Chad,” said the midwife-nurse when probed further.
“She told us to pray for her and the other two, that she has left everything to God,” said Ukambong.
Ukambong also disclosed that Alice’s name had been changed to Halima by the terrorists.
