Leah refused to renounce her faith. She paid the price with her freedom.
She was one of 110 girls abducted from their school in Dapchi, Nigeria by Boko Haram in February 2018. The next month, following negotiations by the government, the girls were put into vehicles to go home.
However, Leah wasn’t among them. She wasn’t released because she refused to convert in exchange for her freedom.
On Wednesday 18 July, to mark 150 days since her abduction, Christians around the world came together in 24 hours of prayer and action.
