'We Are Never Coming Back,' Kidnapped Chibok Girls Say in Boko Haram Video

Boko Haram has put out a video that it says shows some of the girls kidnapped from a town in northeastern Nigeria almost four years ago.

Of the some 220 girls abducted from their school in Chibok, northern Nigeria in April 2014, more than 100 have since been released after mediation while a handful of others have escaped.

The video shows a group of about 12 teenage girls and young women, some of them holding babies.

Boko Haram, whose name roughly translates to "Western education is forbidden", has waged an armed campaign in northeastern Nigeria since 2009.

The video, obtained by journalist Ahmed Salkida, was shared by Sahara Reporters.

"We are the Chibok girls". We are the ones you are crying about for us to come back.

The short videos showed about 14 girls who were said to be part of the school girls abducted from the northeast Nigerian town of Chibok in April 2014. The girls' families have not yet seen the video, he said.

Abuja - A new video released yesterday by the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, has raised concerns over the purported success over Boko Haram terrorists, the war on terror and insurgency.

"The latest release can definitely be tied to the Nigerian government's claim that Boko Haram is defeated", said Ryan Cummings, director of risk management consultancy Signal Risk while speaking with the Thomas Reuters Foundation.

"The same government that killed 347 Shiite men, women and children that have never killed anyone is now releasing Boko Haram members that have killed Nigerians".

Even in cases where the government manages to find and free the girls, they may face opposition from the captives themselves.

One of the Chibok girls stated in the video that "we are the Chibok girls, by the grace of Allah, we will not return to you". A group of almost 100 Chibok girls rescued in October 2016 initially to go with the soldiers who found them.
