The Takfiri Boko Haram militants have released a new video purportedly showing some of the girls who they kidnapped from the Nigerian town of Chibok in 2014.
In the footage released on Sunday, one of the militants claims that some of the girls are still alive, and the others were killed in airstrikes by the Nigerian air force on the Boko Haram compound.
“They should know that their children are still in our hands,” said a Boko Haram militant who appeared before rows of the schoolgirls in the 11-minute video, adding, “Some of them have died as a result of aerial bombardment.”
“There is a number of the girls, about 40 of them, that have been married,” the man said.
