I want to encourage Christians and entire Nigerians to remember her in their prayers always, there is still God in heaven answering prayers. Pray for her protection and deliverance from her captors. Hoping that God of Daniel will deliver her soon from the dungeon where she is now. Also encourages Nigeria government not to relent on their effort to rescue this innocent girl.

Remembering the sadly event that took place On February 19, 2018 at 5:30 pm, 110 schoolgirls aged 11–19 years old were kidnapped by the Boko Haram terrorist group from the Government Girls' Science and Technical College Dapchi (GGSTC). Dapchi is located in Bulabulin, Yunusari Local Government area of Yobe State, in the northern state of Nigeria. The Federal Government of Nigeria deployed the.Nigerian Air Force and other security agencies to search for the missing schoolgirls and to hopefully enable their return. The governor of Yobe State, Ibrahim Gaidam, blamed Nigerian Army soldiers for having removed a military checkpoint from the town. Dapchi lies approximately 275 km (170 miles) northwest of Chibok , where over 276 schoolgirls were kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014.

Following a deal between the government and the militants, Boko Haram released 104 girls, with the last five thought to have died in captivity. The group has kept Leah, a Christian, because she refused to renounce her faith.

On the first anniversary of her abduction, family and community members met at her parents’ home in Dapchi.

“We have gathered at Leah’s House in Dapchi today to show our solidarity to the mother and parents of Leah. As it is today, we don’t know the kind of condition that Leah is inside. Whether she is alive, healthy or sick, we don’t know,” Secretary of Association of Parents of Abducted Dapchi Girls, Kachalla Mohammed told newspaper The Nation.

After the others were released, some told. The Guardian newspaper that Leah had previously escaped from her abductors but was intercepted and returned to her abductors by a nomadic Fulani family.

In October 2018 her parents revealed that Boko Haram had threatened to kill her later that month, should the government not meet their demands. In February 2019 social media reports circulated about her death, but were dismissed by the government as politically motivated disinformation .

Over 5000 Muslims gathered to pray for the release of Leah on Thursday, May 16, 2019.

After spending almost two years in captivity, in January 2020 it was widely reported that Leah had given birth to baby boy after forcefully converted to islam and married off to a boko haram commander. Her father, Nathan Sharibu dismissed the report saying that he would not want to hear such news. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
