Boko Haram on Thursday released a video claiming it has custody of the students abducted from a government secondary school in Kankara, Katsina State, according to Humangle.
The clip which is six-minute-and-30-second long, shows scores of young boys behind him, all covered in dust within a forest area.
The relatively older schoolboy who spoke to the camera urged the Nigerian Government to settle amicably with their abductors and advised against the use of military force in rescuing them.
“Please, you have to dissolve any gang of vigilantes, close any kind of schools, excluding Islamiyyah [Qur’anic schools].
“All the troops who have come here to help us, please send them back,” one of the abducted schoolboys pleaded in the released video.
The Governor of Katsina, Aminu Bello Masari, has said 839 boys were enrolled at the school.
It is still not clear how many students were at the school at the time of the raid, nor how many escaped from the kidnappers.
