The leader of one of the factions of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau has released a video confirming that abducted students of the Government Science Secondary school in Kankara, Katsina State, are in their custody.
The students were abducted by the terrorist group in their dormitories on Friday, December 11 at night. Boko Haram releasing this video contradicts the statements made by government officials that the students were abducted by local bandits.
On Monday, December 14, the terrorist group members released an audio claiming responsibility for the abduction. Read here. According to HumAngles, the terrorist group released a six minutes and 30 seconds long video on Thursdays December 17, featuring speeches from Shekau and one bloodied student who looked highly traumatized. Tens of other boys could be seen behind him, all covered in dust and appearing to be within a forest area.
The relatively older student who spoke urged the Federal Government to settle amicably with their abductors and advised against the use of military force in rescuing them.
“You have to dissolve any gang of vigilantes, close any kind of schools excluding Islamia” A distraught boy said in the video.
“All the Army that has come here to help us, please send them back. They can do nothing to them. Please sir, send all the soldiers and jet back. We need your assistance.” the abducted boy said.
