Shekau taunts military in new video, claims abducted police women are now Boko Haram wives
Leader of the Boko Haram terrorist sect, Abubakar Shekau, has released a video showing police officers who were kidnapped in Borno state last week. In the video which has gone viral, Shekau claimed that the abducted women have become Boko Haram wives. He chided the military for claiming that Bojo Haram has been defeated.
Some female police officers were kidnapped last week after Boko Haram fighters reportedly attacked a convoy of security personnel in the Damboa area of Borno State.
But Shekau’s video is suspect as it showed only still images of the abducted women with Shekau holding a chewing stick. He claimed he was the mastermind of the attack during which several female officers were abducted.
A voice in the video said: “I want to tell you that we were the ones who attacked the convoy, here are the vehicles for all to witness, we are the ones that abducted the female police officers, in 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.”
