Boko Haram Video: Girls being identified as Chibok Kidnapped Girls and others

NEWISSUES, Abuja

Some of the girls in the video released by Boko Haram have been identified by parents and the girls that escaped from Boko Haram captivity. NEWISSUES learned that 54 girls have been identified but the identity of 83 more is unknown among the 136 girls in the video.

When the video was released Dr, Aliyu U Tilde, prominent Northern Nigerian writer, said it must be fake as the girls recite the Quran perfectly and it wouldn’t have been possible for Christian girls to learn that in a short while. Boko Haram had claimed the Christian girls have been converted to Islam.

The Boko Haram leader, Shekau, is asking for his members to be released from prison in exchange with the girls. The Federal Government has agreed to do that.

The Borno government, however, said the identification process has not been concluded.

A statement issued by Governor Kashim Shettima’s Adviser on Media, Isa Gusau, said the identification of the girls is still ongoing even as he listed the names of those identified.

“Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima has confirmed that young girls shown in a video released by the Boko Haram sect, are part of schoolgirls abducted at Government Secondary School Chibok following a night attack on April 14,2014”, said Mr. Gusau.

“Fifty four of the girls of the video have been identified by their names at an exercise that involved some parents of the girls, fellow students that include escapees from abduction, some teachers, security men and some officials of the Borno State Government led by the Chief of Staff to the Government House, Abubakar Kyari. The parents and students were conveyed to the Government House in Maiduguri to make for an open identification exercise.

“The names are currently being compared with school records as well as names published some days back to ensure accuracy. The exercise continues at the Government House and it is hoped that more names will be established by parents, students and teachers as well as management of the affected school”.
