FULL VIDEO: Names of the 54 identified girls + the full 27-minute footage Released by Boko Haram Showing Kidnapped School Girls

Some parents and some of the Chibok girls that escaped captivity on Tuesday viewed the video released by the Boko Haram and identified 54 of the girls in the clips.

In the 27-minute footage, the terror group's leader, Abubakar Shekau, says he is willing to exchange the schoolgirls for Boko Haram prisoners. 

It shows girls dressed in black and gray hijabs, and reciting the Quran as they make Islamic declarations of faith. Shekau appears in a separate part of the video, but never with the girls.

The video was previewed in the office of the Chief of Staff, Government House, Abubakar Kari and the Borno State Government subsequently issued a statement to officially confirm the identity of the victims and also publish the names of those identified from the Boko Haram video.

The identification of 54 of the girls throws more controversy on the identity of the remaining 83 of the 136 girls shown in the video; as well as the whereabouts of the remainder of the over 200 Chibok school girls believed to still be with the Boko Haram.
In the video, Mr. Shekau had claimed majority of the girls converted to Islam. The 136 girls shown were dressed in the Islamic hijab and reciting Quranic verses.
Mr. Shekau said he would not release the girls unless Boko Haram members in federal government jail were released. The government is yet to make a concrete and definite statement on the offer, but said it is reviewing all options.
Mr. Shekau did not give any reason why all the girls were not shown; while there have also been reports that some of the girls shown were not kidnapped from Chibok but were among those kidnapped from other Borno villages.
The Borno government, however, said the identification process has not been concluded.
A statement issued by Governor Kashim Shettima’s Adviser on Media, Isa Gusau, said the identification of the girls is still ongoing even as he listed the names of those identified.
“Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima has confirmed that young girls shown in a video released by the Boko Haram sect, are part of schoolgirls abducted at Government Secondary School Chibok following a night attack on April 14,2014”, said Mr. Gusau.
“Fifty four of the girls of the video have been identified by their names at an exercise that involved some parents of the girls, fellow students that include escapees from abduction, some teachers, security men and some officials of the Borno State Government led by the Chief of Staff to the Government House, Abubakar Kyari. The parents and students were conveyed to the Government House in Maiduguri to make for an open identification exercise.
“The names are currently being compared with school records as well as names published some days back to ensure accuracy. The exercise continues at the Government House and it is hoped that more names will be established by parents, students and teachers as well as management of the affected school”.
