The Boko haram has released a video suggesting that some of the schoolgirls kidnapped two years ago from the town of Chibok might still be alive.
The video shows 15 girls in black robes identifying themselves as pupils abducted from the government secondary school in Chibok in April 2014. It is the first footage of the girls to be seen since May 2014.
The latest video, apparently filmed on Christmas day 2015, shows the girls pleading with the presidency to co-operate with Boko haram on their release. They said they were being treated well but wanted to be with their families.
Two mothers, Rifkatu Ayuba and Mary Ishaya, said they recognized their daughters in the video while a third mother, Yana Galang, identified five of the missing girls
