Boko Haram releases video of abducted Kankara schoolboys
The abduction took place some hours after the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), arrived in Daura, Katsina for a week-long private visit.
The leader of the terror group, Abubakar Shekau, later released a video claiming responsibility for the dastardly act.
The Defence Headquarters has, however, discredited the claim, insisting the act was carried out by bandits.
But a fresh video released by Boko Haram and made public on Thursday shows teenagers believed to be the Kankara schoolboys.
The six minutes and 30 seconds long video features speeches purportedly from Shekau and a teenager believed to be one of the abducted schoolboys.
According to AFP, the video was sent via the same channel as previous messages by Boko Haram.
The distraught teenager, speaking in English and Hausa in the video, said he was among the students taken by “the gang of Abu Shekau.”
