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 (GGSTC), Dapchi
On 21 March 2018 the Federal government announced that Boko Haram terrorists had returned 106 of the kidnapped children.
Leah, aged fourteen at the time of her capture, is the only remaining Dapichi schoolgirl still held hostage. She was reportedly not released along with the other children, because she refused to convert to Islam.
It has been gathered she was married off to a top Boko Haram commander who lives outside Nigeria. Sources said Leah was delivered of the baby early Saturday in Niger Republic.
It was gathered that the insurgents had wanted to release her few months ago but couldn’t because she was pregnant. Sources said Leah was forced to accept Islam before being forcefully married off.
