Boko Haram Offers To Swap
The terrorist group is offering to return more than 200 schoolgirls in exchange for prisoners.
“All I am saying is that if you want us to release the girls that we have kidnapped, those who have not accepted Islam will be treated as the Prophet (Mohammed) treated infidels and they will stay with us,” he said, according to a translation of his words originally spoken in a Nigerian language.
“We will not release them while you detain our brothers,” he said, before naming a series of cities in Nigeria. It was not clear whether he was in the same location as the girls.
There was no immediate reaction from authorities to the new video but one senior official said the government was studying the situation.
