Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has vowed to sell hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped in northern Nigeria three weeks ago, in a new video obtained on Monday by AFP.
“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah,” he said, after reports that some of the 223 girls still missing may have been sold as brides across Nigeria’s border with Chad and Cameroon for as little as $12.
Shekau added that the abduction had caused outrage “because we are holding people (as) slaves”.
