Boko Haram releases video of French family kidnapped in Cameroon

Boko haram french hostage

The French family was kidnapped by the Nigerian terror group.

Islamist extremist group, Boko Haram, has released a video showing the French family kidnapped in Cameroon, near the border with Nigeria.

The three minutes, 26 seconds video, posted on YouTube on Monday, shows the seven members of the Moulin Fournier family, kidnapped on February 19.

The video shows three adult members of the family-two men and one woman; and four children sitting between two armed men, masked, and in military fatigue, and a third who acted as the group spokesperson.

The spokesperson confirmed they belong to the Jama’a Ahl al-Sunnah lil Da’wa wal Jihad, better known as Boko Haram.

He accused France of waging war on Islam, and said the condition for releasing their hostages was for the Nigerian government to release all female jihadists imprisoned, while the Cameroonian government releases their male counterparts.

“Finally, I say to you, fulfill all of these things, and if you leave one thing from them we will slaughter those we took, we will slaughter those we took,” the spokesperson threatened at the end of the video.

The release comes a day after a faction of the group told journalists in Nigeria they were pushing for a ceasefire and that the leader of the group, Abubakar Shekau, was in support of dialogue with the government.

French President, François Hollande, had mentioned Boko Haram as the kidnappers of the hostages. French and Cameroonian authorities also said the hostages were later taken to Nigeria after their kidnap in Cameroon.

    Is this not a mockery to pretend to have stopped in the path of violence and criminality, only to show their true colours by reverting to their customary ways? Can these people ever be trusted to keep their words? Does honour mean anything to them?

    When did Nigeria degenerate so badly. We have suddenly become a haven for terrorists. I used to think the nigerian loved his life so much he wouldn’t ever think suicide bombing an option,I see I was wrong. The hausa man needs enlightening.

      It took hold when the 12 northrn states were allowed to go Islamic forming the pseudo-state Arewa Islamic Republic in all but name. The politicians who allowed this to happen should hang their heads in shame. This is because Nigeria would never be the same again. The can of worns has been opened and there is no puting back the wriggly pests. We are now facing the music.
