On All Hallows Eve, the leader of Boko Haram announced that the 200 or more schoolgirls his Islamists had abducted in April from Chibok in Borno state, Nigeria, will not be freed as they have already converted to Islam and married off to Muslims, according to Barnabas Aid.

In a video, Abubakar Shekau also denied that Boko Haram has agreed to a ceasefire, despite the Nigerian government's claim to the contrary.

Since Chibok, other kidnappings by Boko Haram have continued unabated; an estimated 2,000 (mostly) Christian females are thought to have been abducted by the group's jihadists.

Captives who managed to escape Haram captivity have recounted horrendous sufferings including forced labor, forced conversions, forced marriages and forced sex (rape). Many still show signs of post-traumatic stress.
