Girls In New Boko Haram Video Are Chibok Students - Governor Shettima

Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau,  yesterday released a 27-minute video  which showed the kidnapped Chibok school girls dressed in hijab, reciting a verse of the Holy Koran. The video is the first time the girls, who were kidnapped from their school hostel on April 14, will be shown to the public.

Most of the girls shown in the video have been identified as students of the secondary school. “All the girls in that video were identified to be students of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok,” said Borno state’s Governor Kashim Shettima. Shettima, who spoke in Abuja, had organised a viewing of the video for the Chibok community.

Meanwhile the United States has begun flying “manned” missions over Nigeria to track down the abducted schoolgirls as experts are studying the new video seeking clues to where they are being held. The missions, which commenced on Monday, involve the use of aircraft, including drones, to find the abducted teenage girls.
