The insurgent group, Boko Haram, have released a video to confirm the abduction of policewomen.
In the video released through a journalist, Ahmad Salkida, and published by Sahara Reporters, the sect’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, spoke for about 10 minutes.
His speech is then followed by scenes of the fierce attack, which took place on the Maiduguri-Damboa road.
In the 17 minutes and 25 seconds video, graphic contents of one of the terror victims are shown, as well as images of another set of victims perhaps about to be beheaded.
Shekau, takes credit for the attack and mocked Nigerian security officials for lying that Boko Haram had been defeated.
“I want to tell you that we are the one that attacked the convoy, here are the vehicles for all to witness, we are the ones that abducted the female police officers. In fact, they are senior female police officers,” Shekau said.
“What we did is nothing when compared to our women, children, and friends that have been wiped out or arrested for many years by the Nigerian government. We only abducted them to serve as slaves to us”, he added.
