An amazing story has been brought to light. A pregnant Christian woman in Nigeria was kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists. One of the terrorists felt sorry for her and helped her to escape. When the woman returned home, she found her husband beheaded. As we read in one report on this story from OPB:
When Ibrahim was captured at age 19, her first husband and mother had been killed by Boko Haram and she had remarried and was pregnant with her second husband’s child.
Boko Haram is based in northern Nigeria, where many of its members were radicalized in Islamic boarding schools. Northern Nigeria’s population is heavily Muslim, poorer and less educated than the southern part of the country. Boko Haram is against Westernization.
Ibrahim’s story has many improbable twists and turns. She comes to trust one of the Boko Haram fighters. He asks her to marry him; she says no but he does not object, telling her that he loves her. She has been able to conceal her pregnancy because she lost weight from not eating much but she tells this man that she’s pregnant — a risky confession because Boko Haram has a history of killing pregnant women if they are Christian. Only he is sympathetic and helps her escape by telling her that the compound is unguarded during the tahajjud prayer.
Ibraham reunites with her second husband, but then he disappears. She goes to look for him and finds him dead — beheaded by Boko Haram. Hours later, she goes into labor and gives birth to her daughter alone in a field. She names the child “Gift.”
