The leader of Nigerian Islamic extremist group Boko Haram announced in a recently released video declared that more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls had been married off and converted to Islam.
In the video, the Boko Haram leader also denied there was a cease-fire with the Nigerian government. “A lie,” Shekau- leader of Boko Haram said.The girls, he claimed, had now been married off and converted to Islam. “They have now memorized two chapters of the Quran.”
“In this war, there is no going back,” he said in the video. He said Boko Haram is interested only in “battle, hitting, striking and killing with the gun, which we look forward to like a tasty meal.”
“The issue of the girls is long forgotten because I have long ago married them off,” Shekau said with a laugh.
