Boko Haram releases videos of four abducted victims

  • In the short video clips, the victims stated their names, where they work, the date they were abducted by Boko Haram and the location

Boko Haram has released videos in which they paraded four men abducted by the terrorists from different locations in the Northeast region of Nigeria.

In the short video clips, the victims stated their names, where they work, the date they were abducted and the location.

One of the victims, who introduced himself as Zakaria Azirkime, said he is a staff of UNICEF and was abducted on the Maiduguri-Damboa road.

Two others said they were abducted between Buratai and Buni Yadi, while the fourth, a staff of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), said he was travelling from Kano to Maiduguri when he was abducted.

Premium Times, which obtained the original videos and published the story, observed that the terrorists did not ask the victims to appeal to family members, government or their employers as usually do in previous videos where victims were given such opportunities.

Below is the full transcription of the statements by the victims as they were paraded in the video clips:
