Nigerian Christian teen Leah Sharibu still in captivity
Leah Sharibu, the Nigerian Christian teenage girl who was abducted four years ago at the age of 15 by Boko Haram, is reportedly still alive. However, she remains captive by Muslim militants in Nigeria because she refuses to renounce her faith in Christ.
Pastor Gideon Para-Mallam, who is supporting Leah’s family, told Open Doors, “One of my sources who was recently released from Boko Haram captivity, confirmed that Leah was still alive. She was able to see her.”
An estimated 1,000 children have been abducted so far this year in Nigeria, causing 600 schools to close. Open Doors ranks the country as the 9th worst in the world for the persecution of Christians.
Please keep Leah and her family in your prayers.
