A video of the seven slain foreign hostages was released, yesterday, by Islamist group, Ansaru, forcing the international community to mount pressure on Nigeria to accept the classification of Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation, FTO.
Nigeria has shunned pleas by Western countries led by United States of America, to accept the classification of Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation, FTO.
Interior Minister, Comrade Abba Moro, however, said there were hopes that the hostages reportedly killed,weekend, were still alive. His Information counterpart, Mr Labaran Maku, on his part, said he had not been fully briefed on the situation.
Meanwhile, the images of the slain hostages in a video released on YouTube showed some of the corpses of the seven hostages. According to the Associated Press, ”the images matched the still images of hostages released by the group when they claimed the killings.”
