Factional leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau, has taken responsibility for the abduction police officers in Borno state last week.
In the 17 minutes video, the terrorist group leader said the abducted women have become slaves of the group.
Female police officers were kidnapped after Boko Haram fighters attacked a convoy of security personnel in the Damboa area of Borno last week.
The officers were on their way to a burial in Adamawa state when the sad incident happened.
In the video, Shekau criticised the military for saying Boko Haram has been defeated.
“I want to tell you that we were the ones who that attacked the convoy, here are the vehicles for all to witness, we are the ones that abducted the female police officers, in fact, they are senior female police officers,” he said.
“What we did is nothing when compared to our women, children, and friends that have been wiped out or arrested for many years by the Nigerian government. We only abducted them to serve as slaves to us.”
