Boko Haram has released a video showing some of the Chibok girls who were abducted from their school in April 2014.
In the video, the dreaded terrorist group showed the faces of some girls numbering about 50, in hijabs.
An unknown Boko Haram terrorist asked the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government to release its fighters who were captured by security operatives in exchange for the girls.
In a series of tweets, Ahmad Salkida, a journalist who has had access to Boko Haram, confirms that the girls in the video are indeed the abducted Chibok girls, and that some of them have fallen victims to airstrikes from the Nigerian Air Force in a bid to decimate the terrorist group. Boko Haram released a new video in the late hours of Saturday, August 13. What we know so far, and what we can learn from it:
1. This is the second big Boko Haram’s video that shows Chibok girls 852 days after their abduction.
