The Nigerian-based Islamist fundamentalist group, Boko Haram, has released a video showing that it has kidnapped about ten Nigerian policewomen. The group confirmed the claim by releasing a video to showing the abducted ten policewomen.
In the video released through a journalist, Ahmad Salkida, the group’s leader, the ubiquitous Abubakar Shekau, spoke for about 10 minutes.
He said several female officers were abducted during Boko Haram attack on a joint police/military convoy near Maiduguri on June 20, 2017.
Shekau’s speech was followed by battle scenes of the fierce attack, which took place on the Maiduguri-Damboa road.
In the 17 minutes and 25 seconds video, graphic contents of one of the terror victims are shown, as well as images of another set of victims perhaps about to be beheaded.
Shekau takes credit for the attack and mocked Nigerian security officials for lying that Boko Haram had been defeated.
The Boko Haram leader stated and boasted unequivocally in the video:
“I want to tell you that we are the one that attacked the convoy, here are the vehicles for all to witness. We are the ones that abducted the female police officers. I n fact, they are senior female police officers.
What we did is nothing when compared to our women, children, and friends that have been wiped out or arrested for many years by the Nigerian government. We only abducted them to serve as slaves to us”
– Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram leader
