Boko Haram releases new Chibok Girls video

*SAYS 40 OF THEM MARRIED, OTHERS KILLED IN AIR RAIDS

*DEMANDS THEIR EXCHANGE FOR CAPTURED COMMANDERS

Boko Haram has released a video purporting to show some of the 276 schoolgirls its abducted from a secondary school in Chibok, Borno state in April 2014.

Some 50 girls wearing headscarves are seen behind a Boko Haram militant who demands the release of fighters in return for freeing the girls.

The militant also says 40 of the girls had been married, while some of them have been killed in air strikes, or have been wounded and have life-threatening injuries.

The video concludes with footage of bodies, said to be the victims of air strikes, lying on the ground at another location.

The militant also carries out a staged interview with one of the captives, who calls herself Maida Yakubu, in which she is apparently used to convey the group’s message to the government.

The video is the first such since CNN obtained footage in April purportedly showing 15 of the girls.

Two of the girls had been recovered, one of them with a baby in the Sambisa forest in may.

Meanwhile, the Defence Headquarters says it is examining the authenticity of the new video clip and some of the girls in it.

DHQ spokesman, Brigadier general Rabe Abubakar, in a statement disputed claim in the video by Boko haram spokesman that some of the Chibok girls were killed in air strikes.

Abubakar said air strikes by the Airforce on Boko haram targets, was precision attack on identified and registered targets and locations.
