Reports reaching us at Greenbarge Reporters online newspaper said that Leah Sharibu, who was among the girls abducted Dapchi Secondary School by Boko Haram in 2018 now leads the medical team of Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP).
A military source said that after her abduction, Leah was “trained” on how to administer some medical services to injured Boko Haram fighters and women.
One of the antics of terrorists in the North East is forcing their captives to acquire some expertise in some areas like medicine, nursing, engineering, and computer, among others, to train their members in such areas.
“She was ‘trained’ as a medical personnel and now leads the ISWAP medical team in the northern part of the Lake Chad area,” the source said.
Another source said that “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 Guzamala forest.
“They were sighted on the route of Cross – Mosquito camp- Garin-giwa (where Governor Umara Zulum’s convoy was attacked) – Munguno – Gajiram with cache of dangerous arms”
The source hinted that Leah Sharibu had even remarried another ISWAP commander, after she dumped the first husband.
Leah was abducted alongside over 100 schoolmates from Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, on February 19, 2018.
A few years ago, it was reported by some media houses that the Dapchi girl was married off.
It was gathered that Leah, after the purported divorce from one Abdulrahman, was remarried to another ISWAP commander in the Lake Chad area named Ali Abdallah.
One of the security sources said: “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.
“We don’t know what transpired, but Leah secured the divorce and married another commander, Ali Abdallah.”
