'We're never coming back,' say kidnapped Chibok girls in video

'We're never coming back,' say kidnapped Chibok girls in video

The release of the suspects coincided with a new video released by Boko Haram, which purportedly showed some of the young women kidnapped by the group nearly three years ago now vowing to remain with their captors and never return home.

The 20-minute-long video is the first since May a year ago, when another woman who also claimed to be among the 219 seized from the town in Borno state said she wanted to stay. We are the ones you are crying about for us to come back.

The woman speaking said the Boko Haram factional leader Abubakar Shekau had "married us off".

Mohammed said the insurgents attacked the village around midnight in an operation that lasted for over one hour, killing three people.

At least 14 of the abducted girls - three carrying babies - can be seen in the clip, almost four years after they were seized from the northeast Nigerian town.

"We live in comfort. We are happy here - we have found our faith", said the girl, clad in full Muslim veil.

'Poor souls, we pity our other Chibok girls who chose to return to Nigeria.

'But instead you chose to return to unbelief'.

The 49ers' second first-round pick, Foster also had seven tackles for losses and five hits on the quarterback. In 11 games, the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2017 made 31 tackles with seven sacks and a fumble recovery.

Shekau was also seen, firing a heavy machine gun and making a 13-minute-long sermon in which he said the remaining girls had "understood the folly" of secular education.

The name Boko Haram itself roughly translates to "Western education is forbidden" in the Hausa language.

The group continues to carry out lethal suicide bomb attacks in northeast Nigeria despite repeated government assertions that the insurgency has been defeated.

Fifty-seven manage to flee. They were forced out of Madagali, and Adamawa State altogether, by Nigerian forces in 2015.

Early January 2018 the Nigerian army says it has rescued another of the girls in Borno.

An estimated 20,000 people have been killed and 2.4 million displaced during Boko Haram's nine-year insurgency, with the group's peak coming in 2013 and 2014.

Thousands of women and young girls have been seized and held hostage, including as sex slaves, while men and young boys have been forcibly recruited to fight alongside the militants.
