The dividend of the video released yesterday by Boko Haram terrorist group showing many of the girls kidnapped from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, in the night of April 14, has started coming.

A report by RayPower FM monitored in Lagos has it that one of the mothers of the over 200 abducted girls has been able to identify her daughter in the video.

“The woman identified her abducted daughter among the ones sitting on the ground in the video,” the report said. The woman and her daughter were not identified.

News Express reports that there had been a controversy over the video, with some claiming that the girls therein are not teenagers (the abducted girls are aged 16 to 18) while others claimed that it is unusual for Christian girls to chant praises to Allah and perfectly recite the Quoran as done by the girls in the video. Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau had announced in the video that the girls have become converted to Muslims. Some cynics, among them former Niger Delta militant, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari, even claim that no girls were abducted and that the entire thing is a scam.
