Read what Shekau said he will do with abducted policewomen

Abubakar Shekau, the Leader of the Boko Haram terrorist group has released a new video showing some persons said to be female police officers  allegedly  kidnapped in Borno state last week.

But Police in Abuja said no female officer is being held by Boko Haram

In a 17 minutes footage posted online, he lampooned the military for saying Boko Haram has been defeated, stating that the abducted women have become slaves of the sect.

It could be recalled that some  female police officers were kidnapped after Boko Haram fighters reportedly attacked a convoy of security personnel in the Damboa area of Borno state last week.

The officers were said to be going to a burial in Adamawa state when the unfortunate incident took place.

This video shows only still images of the abducted women, even as Shekau, holding a chewing stick, took credit for the attack, and claimed that several female officers were abducted during the raid.

Shekau was heard saying in the video, “I want to tell you that we were the ones who 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.

“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.”

The elusive terror kingpin stated that the women members of his sect abducted are no fewer than 10 in number, and referred to them as “slaves”.
