Chibok Girls With Assault Rifles Say Why They Refused To Leave militants In New Video. At least four Chibok girls abducted by Islamist terror group, militants in mid-April 2014, today appeared in the insurgent group’s propaganda video explaining their decision not to join other abducted girls released last weekend. The girl who spoke in the video has been identified as Maida Yakubu by Nigerian journalist, Ahmad Salkida, who is known to have unfettered access to the militant group.
The abducted schoolgirls, responding to questions posed by a male voice in the background gave their names and exact class level at Chibok Girls High School where they were abducted approximately three years ago.
In the video, the girl’s detailed reasons they refused to join their colleagues who were recently freed in exchange for several detained commanders of the militant group.
In the video, one of the girls, who spoke Hausa, was asked to introduced herself and she identified herself as Maida yakubu.
She said: “My name is Maida Yakubu from Chibok town. My mother’s name is Esther and my father’s name is Yakubu.”
The girl holding the rifle identified herself as Maida Yakubu.
Maida also said she was a student of GSS in Chibok town.
The girl said she won’t be returning to her parents because of these three reasons:
1. She said her reason for being here is that she doesn’t want to stay in the town of the infidels
2. She said whether people want or not, what Allah said will happen must surely happen and urge people to follow the Qur’an and Hadith and not the Nigerian constitution
3. She said she and the terrorists are under Allah’s protection and that Allah guides can’t be misled and that everyone should turn to Allah urging the government to tread softly.
Meanwhile Ahmad Salkida, Nigerian journalist, says Abubakar Shekau has released a new video on the 82 Chibok girls that were recently swapped with his commanders.
In the new video Shuaibu Moni, one of the swapped militants commanders was seen issuing threats to Nigerian authorities and President Muhammadu Buhari.
Salkida in a series of tweets on Friday, May 12, said the commander, in the video, declared that it is not true that only 5 commanders were released, warning of imminent bombing of Abuja.
According to the negotiator of the swap deal, the outcome should be seen as “a favourable bargain,” considering what obtained in other climes when it comes to prisoner swap of innocent citizens with suspected terrorists.
