Thieves have invaded the family house of Leah Sharibu, the Christian student of Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State still held by Boko Haram.
President of Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association, ACIPA, Luke Shehu, confirmed this on Tuesday, saying the thieves stole the family generator and foodstuffs.
Mr. Shehu said that Mrs Rebecca Sharibu, mother of Leah Sharibu, told him on the phone that the people who came to their house were not armed robbers but thieves.
According to her the incident happened on Monday, adding that the thieves entered through the fence.
“It is a make-shift fence, which anybody can climb easily. Mrs Sharibu said the thieves entered through the window and then stole their generator and also carted away foodstuffs inside the house,” Shehu said.
The Sharibu family members were not in the house when the thieves visited, he added.
Leah had been held in captivity since February 19, 2018, by Boko Haram terrorists due her Christian faith.
The invasion of her family house by theieves comes barely days after her mother and primary school teacher, Rebecca Sharibu and her son, Donald, were honured by ACIPA with awards at the Church of Christ in Nations in Jos, Plateau State.
