Terrorist group, Boko Haram has released video evidence that the kidnapped students from Government Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina State are in its custody.
The video footage was released on Thursday, 17th December showing some of the students in the background.
As seen in the six minutes, thirty seconds video, the students are alive but look distraught and covered in dust in what appears to be a forest area.
One of the students who spoke in the video, the government should not use force or the military to try and rescue them but should negotiate with their abductors.
Recall that the faction of the terrorist group loyal to Abubakar Shekau had taken responsibility for the abduction which happened on Friday 11th December at the school premises.
However, the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari stated that local bandits, not Boko Haram were responsible for the abduction.
