Chibok girls’ kidnapper jailed for 15 years

The military court in Niger state has jailed a Boko Haram militant involved in the 2014 kidnapping of the Chibok girls.

Thirty five year old, Haruna Yahaya is the first member of the group to be sentenced for playing a part in the mass abduction.

The former trader, who confessed to his role in taking the 276 schoolgirls, argued he was made to act under duress.

But judges sitting at a military court in Kanji, Niger state, who are hearing the cases of more than 1,000 suspected Boko Haram militants, dismissed his excuse.
