Abducted school girl, Leah Sharibu is 15 years old today.
Unlike her peers, she is marking it in the custody of insurgents.
She was one of the 112 kidnapped from their school — Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state — by Boko Haram members on February 19.
Others have been released but she was denied freedom because she refused to denounce her faithj.
She turned 15 years on Monday, 12 weeks after her kidnap. But she won’t be having the usual funfare that comes with teen birthday celebrations.
She is somewhere enveloped in fear, in the company of the same persons that took her away from her friends and family.
Shortly after the other girls were released, President Muhammadu Buhari expressed sadness over Sharibu’s situation and promised his government will not abandon her.
Weeks after that promise, she is still in captivity.
