A video evidence showing school boys abducted from the Government Secondary School Kankara has been released by Boko Haram.
The Abubakar Shekau faction of Boko Haram shared the video on Thursday confirming that it has custody of the students abducted last Friday.
The video, sighted by the Human Angle, is six minutes and 30 seconds long, and features speeches from Shekau and one of the schoolboys who looked distraught and bloodied.
Tens of other young boys could be seen behind him, all covered in dust and appearing to be within a forest area.
The relatively older students who spoke, in both English and Hausa, urged the Federal Government to settle amicably with their abductors, advising the government not to use of military force in rescuing them.
