(CNN) — A Boko Haram video emerged Monday purportedly showing some of the kidnapped Nigerian girls in headdresses and the terror group’s leader declaring they have converted to Islam.
The 27-minute footage shows girls wearing Hijab headdresses and reciting the Quran as they make Islamic declarations of faith.
It was shot in a nondescript area of a bush.
Last month, a convoy of Islamist militants drove into a school in northeastern Nigeria, abducted nearly 300 girls and fled into the night. At least 276 girls remain missing since the terror group seized them on April 14.
