Leah was one of more than 100 schoolgirls that Boko Haram abducted on February 19, 2018, from the Government Girls Secondary School in Dapchi, Yobe State. Weeks after the shocking abduction, the terrorists released the other girls, but they kept Leah in captivity for refusing to renounce her faith.
