Leah Sharibu

A 22-year-old nurse identified as Jennifer Ukambong, who was earlier in the captivity of Boko Haram terrorist group, says Leah Sharibu is currently located somewhere around Lake Chad.

The rescued Boko Haram captive said this when she returned to Jos, the Plateau state capital on Saturday after her release was secured by security operatives on Thursday.

Miss Ukambong while speaking in Jos, where her return was being celebrated by her relatives, friends, and well-wishers, said Leah Sharibu is being treated well in captivity, adding that the abducted teenage girl had grown fatter than she was when abducted.

The rescued Boko Haram captive while narrating her experience in the hands of her abductors, revealed that the ruthless terrorists followed the precepts of the Qur’an when dealing with their captive.
She said the terrorists were kind towards her and other abductees.

In her words captured on the Nigerian dailies,  Miss Ukambong said as thus; “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.”

Miss Ukambong while speaking further, also mentioned that Mrs. Alice Ngaddah, Miss Grace Taku and Leah Sharibu who are still held captives by the Boko Haram insurgents were all according to her words, “doing fine in the forest.”

The rescued Boko Haram captive during her visit to Alice Ngaddah’s house in the forest, whose name has been changed to Halima, stated that she was told that Leah was alive and well, and had grown fatter.

Her words: “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,”

“She told us to pray for her and the other two, that she has left everything to God,” she opined.
