They pleaded with the government to respond to the demands of the terrorists, including paying ransom so they could be set free.
Terrorist of the Shekau Boko Haram faction stormed the school, south of Katsina in the night of Friday 11 December and stole the boys.
One of the boys who spoke in both English and Hausa said they were 520 but some of them were killed because the government sent troops to rescue them.

“All the troops who have come here to help us, please send them back,” one of the schoolboy pleaded in the released video.
