Lady Whose Spouse Was Murdered By Boko Haram Remarries In The US


Sarah's late spouse, a Lieutenant Colonel, was murdered amid battle by Boko Haram in February 2015 in Maiduguri, Borno State. 

A lady, who lost her husband to the feared Boko Haram rebellion bunch in Nigeria, has remarried in the United States of America. 

The lady, who for security reason, changed her name to Sarah, got got married to a Liberian (name withheld).

Be that as it may, three years after, she got got married in a beautiful service within the sight of loved ones in United States. 

Affirming the wedding in a meeting with New Telegraph yesterday, a United States-based International Human Rights legal advisor and casualties' backer, Emmanuel Ogebe, said Sarah's marriage to a Liberian was captivating in light of the fact that her late spouse had served in Liberia amid a military peace-keeping mission to take steadiness back to the war-torn nation. 

He stated: 

“With her son leading the bridal train as the little groom, the resplendent bride made her way into the packed Texan church to a different kind of wedding song.

The lyrics, ‘God sent you to love and comfort me,’ couldn’t be more apt. The bride, Sarah was remarrying in America after Boko Haram killed her husband in Maiduguri, North-East Nigeria a few years before.

“The wedding was on Martin Luther King holiday weekend this year, the holiday commemorating the civil rights icon who advocated for racial equality.

“At the Houston wedding reception, I was seated next to a medical doctor and his wife also a doctor (relatives of the bride.) To my left was a medical doctor and her kids (friends of the bride.) The wedding guests in Houston were a true microcosm of highly educated Nigerian American immigrants.

As lawyers, my wife and I were probably the least educated professionals on our table. The crowd was a mix of family, friends, co-workers and members of the ethnic church where the couple served and met.”

Disclosing how Sarah met her Liberian husband, Ogebe said

“All began when the Liberian groom served in the parking ministry of the church and helped Sarah find parking before service. After that she was regularly needing parking assistance from one volunteer in particular.

“Her marriage to a Liberian is especially intriguing. Her late husband had served in Liberia during a military peace-keeping mission to bring stability back to the war-torn country.

“Thinking back on her wedding song, ‘God sent you to love and comfort me,’ that is the true redeeming grace in what would otherwise have been a heart-breaking story.

“Seeing this American woman marrying again and rebooting her life was an emotional experience for me. When governments fail, God doesn’t. Hope is indeed the heart’s great quest and love its healing balm. I admit it; I teared up during the wedding – overwhelmed by God’s solution to this situation.”

Ogebe, when asked about his relationship with Sarah’s late husband and how the military officer died in 2015. he simply said:

 ‘he died like an hero fighting in defence of his country.’
