Unconfirmed Report says The Abubakar Shekau-led faction of Boko Haram has released a video confirming that it has custody of the students abducted from a government secondary school in Kankara, Katsina State, last Friday.
The release also confirms that the students are still alive and the terror group is prepared to negotiate their freedom.
The video made public on Thursday is six minutes and 30 seconds long and features background voice from one of the Terrorists and one of the schoolboys
Tens of other young boys could be seen behind him, all covered in dust.
The relatively older student who spoke, in both English and Hausa, urged the Federal Government to settle amicably with their abductors and advised against the use of military force in rescuing them
In a reaction, the defence headquarters told the media that it is verifying the Authenticity of the video and will respond in due time.
