#FreeLiya: Toke Makinwa reacts to Dapchi Girl who refused to deny Jesus Christ
By Rita Chioma,
Toke Makinwa has reacted to the continued abduction of Liya Sheribu who is reportedly in custody of Boko Haram.
Liya was abducted alongside over a hundred girls from their school in Dapchi, Yobe state.
However, the Islamist militants released the other girls on the grounds that they are Muslims while they held on to Liya Sheribu, a Christian girl who refused to deny Jesus Christ and wear the hijab.
Here is Ms Makinwa’s thoughts on the trending news:
“If this is not bravery, I don’t know what to call it. This young lady Leah was one of the abducted Dapchi school girls, she refused to deny her faith and sfe was held back while the others have been released.
Heavenly Father, as she stood up unashamed for you, as she refused to denounce her faith in the face of the unknown, I pray that you too will defend her, cover her Lord, do as you did in the days of the 3 Jewish boys who refused to bow down to a foreign god and by her act of boldness change the hearts of her abductors, Jesus, save them. Forgive them, introduce yourself to them and let them find salvation Lord and lastly let this inspire everyone who is struggling with their faith, let this miracle open our eyes and hearts to you Lord. You have done it before, you will do it again. It shall end in praise”
