He said his group previous year "willingly" released 107 schoolgirls who refused to accept his creed, but the estimated 100 who remain are pleased to stay with Boko Haram. "We lack nothing", she added.

Later that month, Boko Haram release a video in which a woman claiming to be one of the Chibok girls is seen wearing a black veil and holding a gun.

Al Jazeera could not independently verify that those appearing in the video were among those abducted in Chibok.

"The latest release can definitely be tied to the Nigerian government's claim that Boko Haram is defeated", said Ryan Cummings, director of risk management consultancy Signal Risk. Among Boko Haram's most popular strategies to terrorize is to abduct girls en masse and "marry" them off to terrorists, impregnating them and ensuring a stable population of children to use in.
