Archbishop of Canterbury invites Leah Sharibu’s mother to London to mark two years since her daughter’s abduction

Leader of the Church of England and the Anglican communion worldwide, Justin Welby invited and hosted  Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of abducted Dapchi schoolgirl Leah Sharibu.

The Archbishop of Canterbury shared the Eucharist with Rebecca Sharibu. He also praised her faith and courage and described  her as a “woman of profound courage and faith.”

Leah Sharibu was a 14-year-old school girl when she was abducted  alongside 109 other schoolgirls on February 19, 2018. Of the 107 girls who survived the ordeal, all were released by the Boko Haram terrorists who abducted them, except Leah who was held back because she refused to renounce Christianity and convert to Islam.

Recent reports claim she has been married off to a commander and even recently birthed a son for him.

Sharing a photo he took with Leah’s mother at Lambert Palace in London, United Kingdom, the Archbishop of Canterbury wrote:

We were honoured to share the Eucharist with Rebecca Sharibu today. A woman of profound courage and faith, Rebecca is the mother of 16-year-old Christian Leah Sharibu, who was kidnapped by Boko Haram two years ago this week. We pray for you, and for Leah to be released free from harm.
