There’s currently an outrage on social media as kidnapped teenager, Leah Sharibu, held in Boko Haram captivity for over one year allegedly gives birth to a baby boy.
According to SaharaReporters, Leah was delivered of the baby a few weeks ago following her forceful marriage to a top Boko Haram commander.
She was reportedly not released along with the other abducted children because she had refused to convert to Islam .
Nigerians are reacting to the news and condemning President Muhammadu Buhari for allowing Leah suffer her current situation.
See some reactions below:
I'm expecting to see what #IAmNorth and Arewa Twitter responses would be to Buhari on Leah Sharibu's child birth.
I want to see if they'll justify this since child marriage is a norm in the North.
I'm waiting. pic.twitter.com/yVJLQOoHfr

You received the ambassador while Leah Sharibu was tortured and forced to renounce Christianity and raped till she got pregnant for a terrorist leader. You have daughters Aisha but you never for one day stood up to demand for Leah Sharibu's release. https://t.co/O6alQvi54Q

Imagine Niger Delta militants kidnaps Students, after negotiations released them & kept back one Aisha bcos she refused to convert to Christianity. This country will burn.
I will continue to say it. They abandoned Leah Sharibu wit Boko Haram bcos she is not Muslim

On this Leah Sharibu issue, let's call a spade a spade. The government FAILED! Which one is "we failed her as a nation"? Call out the government for their failure and stop making it sound mild by saying "we" failed her. what should the ordinary citizen have done?

#BokoHaram abducted Leah Sharibu sometime ago, forced her to denounce Christ, married her off forcefully, raped her continually, and now she's given birth…
…And as always Nigeria is silent like nothing ever happened…
Nigeria is really a failed state 😢 pic.twitter.com/9rKjJoA9RY
