In the ongoing back and forth between the Nigerian government and Boko Haram, the militant terrorist group's leader has denied both a cease-fire with the government and plans to release more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls.
Abubakar Shekau, seen in this video from early October, released a more recent message on Friday saying the missing schoolgirls have converted to Islam and have all been married off. (Video via Sahara TV)
