The Borno state police command have described the recent video released by BokoHaram as false.
In the video released through journalist Ahmad Salkida, the sect’s leader Abubakar Shekau spoke for about 10 minutes.
He claimed that several female officers were abducted during Boko Haram attack on a joint police/military convoy near Maiduguri on June 20.
The command in a statement by its PRO, DSP Isuku Victor, insisted that no police woman was in custody of the insurgents.
He said “for avoidance of doubts, and to put records straight, there are no Police women under Boko Haram terrorist’s captivity as claimed by the sect leader.”
