Boko Haram Releases Video Of Chibok Girls, Claims Air Force Bombs Killed Some
Boko Haram has just released a disturbing video that purports to show some of the Chibok girls kidnapped from a secondary school Chibok town two years ago.
According to a spokesman of the group, who was featured in the video shared on twitter by journalist Ahmad Salkida, some of the Chibok girls were killed by Nigerian Airforce bombs, and the survivors has since embraced Islam. The spokesman, who wore a mask to hide his identity, also revealed that some of the girls have since gotten married to Boko Haram fighters.
Some of the girls in the new video are carrying toddlers.
The group says it is seeking a swap with the government and suggests it plans to release the Chibok girls in exchange for Boko Haram members in Nigerian prisons. It warns the government not to try to rescue the girls as they will ensure none of them are found alive if an attempt is made.
The video also features images of what the group claims to be bodies of some Chibok girls killed by the Nigerian Air Force
The video follows the announcement of a new leader for the terrorist group by ISIS, a move that led to speculations about the fate of Abubakar Shekau. Shekau later released a tape saying he is still in charge and the battle fatigue-clad spokesman in this video started off by mentioning that his group is led by Shekau. Despite his claims, the fact that Shekau wasn’t featured in a video of this magnitude will leave questions about his status open.
This video, if it is confirmed to be of the Chibok girls, will be viewed as a proof of life video and may determine the Nigerian government’s next action.
The next few days will be very interesting.
