News that Leah Sheribu, a Christian girl kidnapped By Boko Haram, has given birth to a baby boy is another slap on the face of President Muhammadu Buhari, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Nigeria as a nation.
It was gathered that Leah delivered a boy a few weeks ago after she was forced to marry a top Boko Haram commander.
For so long, reports emerged that the young lady was brave and refused to dump Christianity for Islam but the country let her down as we couldn’t save her from the hands of the deadly group.
Since the country has failed her, we can only hope she finds a place in her heart to forgive us. One can only imagine the trauma she must have passed through after being forced into marriage and forced to carry a baby in her stomach for nine months. Her family members were not even there to witness the wedding ceremony if there was any.
The only sin the young girl committed was to come to this world as an ordinary citizen. If she were to be Buhari’s daughter, would the president have abandoned her? Of course, no! Everything would have been put in place to rescue her from the jaws of death. But since she is nobody, nobody cares about her.
Leah was part of some schoolgirls kidnapped in Yobe State by Boko Haram fighters two years ago.
