Contain Video: 


Boko Haram terror group has released a new video and displayed about 10  women believed to have been kidnapped from a police convoy in Borno state on June 21.

The group had attacked the convoy conveying a corpse of a deceased policewoman to Adamawa state with a number of officers reported missing after the attack.

In the video, Abubakar Shekau, leader of the Boko Haram sect, said the abducted officers had become slaves.

As seen in the video, one Adam Gomdia, who introduced herself as a lecturer at the federal college of fisheries, Baga, said five of the women were public servants whom she described as breadwinners in their families.

“Today, here we are, everyone has seen us, our relatives have seen us, government, our youngsters have all seen us, this is not a lie, we have been abducted for 30 days,” said Gomdia

Deborah Philipus, another woman who spoke in the video, said the insurgents have taken care of them by treating their injuries and providing other necessities for them.

“We are grateful to you (Boko Haram). But the government of Nigeria should not say we were not abducted, indeed we were abducted,” Philipus said.
