Boko Haram will soon release videos of the remaining Chibok schoolgirls and some women abducted from a police convoy in Borno state, according to Ahmad Salkida.
Salkida, a journalist known to have access to the leadership of the sect, disclosed this via Twitter, quoting sources.
The schoolgirls were abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno on April 14, 2014, while the women were taken captive when members of the insurgent group attacked a police convoy in June 2017.
The attack on the convoy had left two officers dead while 57 were reportedly missing.
Salkida also said the sect would release a video on the air force jet which crashed in the north-east last week.
The military had only announced that the aircraft suffered a mishap but did not go into details. The location of the tragic incident was not also made public but Salkida quoted sources as saying Boko Haram fighters gunned down the jet.
“Sources close to the Shekau led terror group say they shall be releasing a string of videos on the abducted Chibok girls, Police wives and crashed helicopter,” Sakilda wrote on Twitter.
“The group claims they gunned it down amid unrelenting push by the Army.”

Salkida had also disclosed on Thursday that members of the insurgent group were reportedly holding a soldier hostage along the Lake Chad Basin.
He dismissed the claims of the army that the sect had been defeated.
