Boko Haram released a video late on Friday claiming to show the Chibok schoolgirls who refused to be rescued as part of a recent swap deal with the Nigerian government.   

In the three-minute video, a woman who claims to be Maida Yakubu, one of the schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in April 2014, is seen wearing a black veil and holding a gun.     

Flanked by three other women clad in black, she proclaims her loyalty to Boko Haram, the group that has killed more than 20,000 people since taking up arms against the Nigerian government in 2009.   

When asked by a man in the background why she doesn’t want to go back home to her parents, she replies: “The reason is that they live in the town of unbelief. We want them to accept Islam.”

The woman then speaks in the local Chibok dialect for the rest of the video.

Boko Haram: Behind the Rise of Nigeria’s Armed Group

Last week, 82 schoolgirls who were kidnapped three years ago were released after negotiations between the group and the government.

The threat comes as Nigeria opened another round of talks for the release of more kidnapped schoolgirls.   

The Nigerian military said in December it had ousted Boko Haram from their Sambisa Forest stronghold in northeastern Borno State.     

While the fighters have lost significant swathes of territory since Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari came into power in 2015, they are still capable of launching deadly attacks on soldiers and continue to unleash suicide bombers in cities and camps for internally displaced people in Nigeria’s ravaged northeast.
