Coming years after over 200 girls were abducted by the Islamist Jihadist militants, Boko Haram, the religious sect has on Monday released a new video purporting to show at least 14 of the abducted schoolgirls.
With at least three of the girls abducted in April of 2014 seen with babies, one of the girls in the newly released video said: “We are the Chibok girls. By the grace of Allah, we will not return to you.”
The girl further added in the video which is the first since May in 2017, “Poor souls, we pity our other Chibok girls who chose to return to Nigeria. Allah blessed you and brought you to the caliphate for you to worship your creator.
“But instead you chose to return to unbelief.”
The video which goes on for 20-minute also showed a woman whose face was covered with a veil attesting to the fact that they had been married by Boko Haram factional leader Abubakar Shekau.
The woman said: “We live in comfort. He provides us with everything. We lack nothing.”
Shekau, the factional leader of the group was also seen in the video firing a heavy machine gun and making a 13-minute-long sermon in which he said the remaining girls had “understood the folly” of secular education.
