Without enough funds, we can’t defeat B’Haram – Army

Son of pregnant Sudanese woman sentenced to death forced to live in her prison cell.

 The young son of the pregnant 27 year old woman, Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag (pictured above), who was sentenced to death in Sudan last week for Apostasy is forced to live in jail with his mom. Meriam who is reportedly shackled & bleeding in her prison cell, is expected to give birth to her second child on or before June 1st, Hollywood Life reports.

We thought that Meriam’s story could not get any worse, but it has. It turns out that while a very pregnant Meriam awaits her death sentence in prison, her precious little boy has been forced to live inside her prison cell with her. Meriam will also have to care for her unborn baby in that cell once it is born.
The UN is intervening and trying to save an 8 month pregnant woman from the death penalty in Sudan who married a Christian man.  
Reports claim that the Sudanese government will not allow Martin’s father to care for him while Meriam is in prison solely because he is both a Christian and an American citizen.

The pastor of the Baptist church Ikonifin, who is also the CAN President of Ola Oluwa Local Government, was reported to have conspired with three members of his church, Emmanuel Atanda, Pitter Oyedepo and Ogunniyi Babatope to dress like Boko Haram militants and use turban to cover their faces.
