Toke Makinwa is one of Nigerian celebrities who have taken to social media to air their views and reaction to the news of the girl being held back by Boko Haram.
Since news broke out about the release of most of the Dapchi girls, the internet has been abuzz, especially when it was learnt that one of the girls Liah Sharibu, who is also a Christian, was still remaining in captive because she refused to deny Christ.
Toke shared a very inspiring post about the Leah’s resilience. She wrote:
“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 she 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 🙏”
