NIGERIA – Government Asked to Save Teen Christian from Threatened Execution

WND | Oct. 25, 2018

An American religious-rights group is calling on Nigeria to help free a 15-year-old Christian girl kidnapped and enslaved by the Muslim terrorist group Boko Haram.The American Center for Law and Justice has written to Nigerian ambassador Sylvanus Adiewere Nsofar on behalf of Leah Sharibu.

Sharibu was among 100 girls abducted by Boko Haram in February 2018 from a girls’ boarding school. Five of the girls were killed by the Muslims, and another 104 eventually were released.

But Boko Harm still holds Sharibu prisoner “because she refuses to bend to Boko Haram’s demands that she renounce her Christian faith and convert to Islam,” ACLJ wrote.

Since 2011, ACLJ pointed out, Boko Haram has killed more than 37,500 people, displaced 2.4 million and created 228,000 refugees.

“Those responsible need to be brought to justice,” the letter said.
