Boko Haram Releases Footage Of Remaining Abducted Chibok Girls (VIDEO)

Boko Haram insurgent group has released a new video showing girls purported to be among the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped from their school hostel in April 2014.

In the video, which was made available to Sahara Reporters, by Ahmed Salkida, a journalist who specializes in reporting on the conflicts in the Lake Chad region, one of the girls who spoke for the others can be heard saying, “This is a message to our parents in Nigeria, they should repent and bow to Boko Haram, we won’t come back.”

Speaking while her face was covered with a veil, the girl disclosed that they had all been married by Boko Haram factional leader Abubakar Shekau.

“We live in comfort. He provides us with everything. We lack nothing,” she added.

Shekau can also be seen in the video firing a heavy machine gun and making a 13-minute-long sermon.

“I am not wounded, I am ready to fight and will continue to fight,”  he said as he read from a prepared speech in  Hausa and flanked left and right by well-armed lieutenants.

Shekau also claimed responsibility for the air force helicopter that crashed recently although, the military authority had earlier told Nigerians that the helicopter came down as result of technical issues.

The Boko Haram video also paraded some women believed to be police officers who were abducted in June 2017, the women sobbed as a Boko Haram speaker recited the Qur’an before asking some of them to speak on video, it appears they’re under duress as they were surrounded by armed Boko Haram fighters.

The jihadists seized 276 students from the Government Girls Secondary School in the mostly Christian town in Borno state on April 14, 2014, triggering global condemnation.

Fifty-nine of them managed to escape in the hours that followed.

A total of 107 girls have now been either found, rescued or released as part of government negotiations with the Islamic State group affiliate.

On January 4, the Nigerian army said it had rescued one of the girls’ classmates in the remote Pulka region of Borno, near the border with Cameroon.
