For a mother whose daughter has remained in captivity on account of refusal to renounce her faith, even after her fellow abductees have been set free, and who is alleged to have been impregnated by one of her captors, nothing would be too much to bear, including having to accept one of the captors as an in-law.

Leah Sharibu’s mother is willing to go down this route just to secure the release of her beloved one.As her daughter turned 17 last Thursday, May 14, and marks her third birthday in captivity, Mrs. Rebecca Sharibu, mother of Leah Sharibu, the only Chibok schoolgirl still in Boko Haram captivity, said she was ready to take an outlaw for an in-law as long as her daughter is set free, just as she expressed disappointment with the federal government’s unending negotiation for her daughter’s release, describing it as “a scam to satisfy themselves.”

Leah is the sole Christian among 110 schoolgirls abducted by the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) faction of Boko Haram from their school in Dapchi, Yobe State, on February 19, 2018.
