Boko Haram, the Sunni jihadist terrorist organization widespread in northern Nigeria, has released a new video concerning the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped in April two years ago in Nigeria. In these images, you can see 50 veiled girls behind a Boko Haram fighter that requires the release of some fighters in exchange for the release of the young women.
This is the third Boko Haram video showing the girls kidnapped in April 2014 in Chibok. At present, it is believed that 220 of the nearly 280 kidnapped girls are still in the hands of the jihadist group.
The man who talks in the video, according to experts, is the spokesman for the jihadist group. A part of the movie shows also images of an alleged bombardment at the hand of the army, which seems to have killed some of the girls held hostage. Then follows a request made by one of the kidnapped girls, who asks her parents to make pressure on the government to release the terrorists. There are other girls in tears at her back. One of them is holding a newborn in her hands.
“Our parents need to be patient and tell the government to release the members of the group, so that the group can release us”, begs the girl, addressing her loved ones. The spokesman for the jihadist group warns: if you try to free them forcefully, all of them will die.
