Boko Haram Frees All But One Seized Schoolgirls; Refuses to Free the Only Christian Kidnapped Girl

The Boko Haram radical Islamist group in Nigeria has released all but one of the Dapchi schoolgirls whom it kidnapped on February 19, the Christian Headlines website reports today (March 23, 2018).

The only girl who was not released is also the only Christian among the group. Her name is Leah Sharibu. She is only 15 years old, and she refuses to denounce Christ.

The girls were released by Boko Haram in a ceremony in the town of Dapchi. The terrorist organization reached an agreement with the Nigerian government that there would be no interference with the return.

In the early hours of March 21, Boko Haram drove into the town with nine trucks and unloaded all of the girls, except for five that died during the kidnapping, and Sharibu.
