If I speak, heads will roll – Gov. Shettima threatens
Borno state Governor, Governor Kasim Shettima has stated that he is under pressure not to speak the truth. The governor while confirming that 36 of the girls abducted from their school in Chibok, Borno state, have been identified in the video released yesterday by the Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, said there is little a governor can do. The governor stated, “Leadership calls for restraint. Believe me, if I should speak, heads will roll.” Reports from CNN suggests that not all the girls in the video shown by Boko Haram were taken on April 14 because some of the relatives of the missing girls could not identify most of them in the footage while another report from Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana to CNN, suggests only two parents were able to identify their daughters and other girls may have been taken in abductions which occurred years ago.
