Boko Haram Says Armed Girls Are Some Of The Chibok Girls
It is one week after 82 of the abducted Chibok girls were released in a prisoner swap deal.
Boko Haram terrorists are claiming that some of the girls have been radicalised and are unwilling to return home.
In a new video released by the terrorist group, four girls could be seen wearing niqabs with only their eyes visible. One of them held an assault rifle.
With their faces covered, analysts doubt if the girls were truly part of the girls abducted, but the girls gave information linked to their identity.
The video was published by Sahara Reporters on its Youtube account. The media organisation said it got the video from a journalist Ahmed Salkida.
The terrorist group claimed that some of the abducted girls from Chibok have decided to join their push for the establishment of an Islamic State in northeast Nigeria and an end to Western education.
WHY WE REFUSED TO GO BACK
Responding to questions from a male voice, the girls gave details of their classes and the date they were kidnapped.
They also explained why they refused to go back to their parents.
The girls also gave their names and claimed that they were from Chibok, a community in Borno State. They said they attended the Government Secondary School in Chibok.
Most of the abducted girls were said to be Christians, but the girls in the new video, responding in Hausa language, claimed they were unwilling to go back to their parents because of the religion they now practice.
After the girls were abducted on April 14, 2014, the leader of the group, Abubakar Shekau, claimed that the girls have been married off, but the arms-wilding girls in the video insisted that it was not true that they were being forced into marriage
“No, that is not true. Those of us who want to are those married,” one of them said.
The lead speaker also wanted her parents that have been in grief since their abduction to accept Islam.
She said her message to Nigerians was for them to stop reading all books that were not from Allah.
“Leave all books that are not from Allah. Whether you like it or not, the teachings of Allah will be propagated. And if you refuse him, you will die with your ignorance,” she said.
This video is coming a day after the Minister of Interior told reporters in Minna that the Nigerian government was making efforts to securer the release of the remaining girls.
