Boko Haram has released a video showing the abducted students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina state.
Over 300 students were abducted last Friday when gunmen invaded the school.
Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram, had on Tuesday said his group was responsible for the attack.
In a new video released on Thursday by the insurgents, some of the boys, looking unkempt, appealed to the government to cooperate with their abductors so they can be freed.
“Please help us. Tell the vigilantes and soldiers not to come around,” one of the boys in the video said.
He also said there are “more than 500 of them in the forest”.
