“They Have Converted to Islam”, Shekau Says
Islamist militants, Boko Haram, have released a video showing some of the girls kidnapped from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok Borno State, Nigeria last month.
In the video, the group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, offered an exchange of the girls for all members of the sect in police captivity.
He boasted that all the girls have been converted to Islam.
Released on Monday, the video showed the girls praying.
Boko Haram abducted more than 200 girls from northern Nigeria on 14th April and threatened to sell them.
Three of the girls were shown speaking in the 17-minute video, obtained by French news agency AFP, wearing the full-length hijab.
Two of the girls said they were Christians but have converted to Islam, while the other one said she is Muslim.
“These girls, these girls you occupy yourselves with… we have indeed liberated them. These girls have become Muslims,” Shekau said in the video.
The video showed about 130 girls – just under half of the 276 pupils abducted from their school on 14th April.
