BokoHaram Terrorists have refused to release Leah Sheribu, one of the 110 schoolgirls abducted from a secondary school in Dapchi, last month, because she refused to convert from her Christian religion to Islam.news emerged that the terrorists had driven the abducted girls back to Dapchi on Wednesday March 21, 2018.
This claim was made by Sheribu’s father, Nata, while speaking during an interview after Nata said his daughter was not released by the terrorist group because she refused to renounce her Christian faith like they demanded.
He said he discovered this after speaking to some of the released girls on the phone and that he’s proud of his daughter’s decision.
He said, “Right now, I’m not in Dapchi. I’m in my duty post. I called the parents who are in Dapchi. I was informed that my daughter was not released. All of them have been released but they said some were dead there, but my daughter is alive.
“They said she was a Christian that’s why they could not release her. They said she cannot be released until she becomes a Muslim. And my daughter said she would never be a Muslim.
“I spoke with about five to six of them whose daughters have been released. They are presently with their daughters in Dapchi. They were dropped by the Boko Haram people in Dapchi town this morning.
“I am happy because my daughter did not denounce her faith. They refused to release her because she refused to convert to Islam.”
