Tthe girls abducted from Federal Government Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state, where returned to the community on Wednesday but five schools girls didn’t regain their freedom as it was gathered that they reportedly lost their lives and Liya Sharibu was not returned because she refused to denounce Christ.
On Liya Sharibu, Toke Makinwa wrote,
“If this is not bravery, I don’t know what to call it. This young lady Leah was one of the abducted Dapchi school girls, she refused to deny her faith and sse was held back while the others have been released.
Heavenly Father, as she stood up unashamed for you, as she refused to denounce her faith in the face of the unknown, I pray that you too will defend her, cover her Lord, do as you did in the days of the 3 Jewish boys who refused to bow down to a foreign god and by her act of boldness change the hearts of her abductors, Jesus, save them. Forgive them, introduce yourself to them and let them find salvation Lord and lastly let this inspire everyone who is struggling with their faith, let this miracle open our eyes and hearts to you Lord. You have done it before, you will do it again. It shall end in praise”
