You’d recall that Leah was among the 110 girls abducted from Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi in Yobe State by Boko Haram insurgents on February 19, 2018. According to the account of one of the girls abducted, Leah was not released because she refused to convert to Islam.
Despite assurance from the federal government to free Leah, she remains in captivity.
