Pray for Leah

Protesters outside Nigerian Embassy

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.

One year protest, 19 February 2019

To mark one year since Leah’s abduction, we gathered in protest and prayer outside the Nigeria High Commission in London on 19 February. Our message was, 'Still here. Still waiting for action.'

During the protest we linked live to Leah’s mother, Rebecca, in Nigeria. We hope that on that painful anniversary, she was encouraged to know that people all over the world are still speaking up and praying for her daughter’s release.

The protest was covered in many news outlets in the UK and Nigeria, including on the front page of This Day, Nigeria’s biggest daily.

You can still speak up for Leah now

Our call to President Buhari is unchanged – to negotiate the release of Leah and Alice, the remaining humanitarian worker, and the 112 remaining Chibok girls.
