The Islamic rebel group Boko Haram from Nigeria, denies flatly that it will release 200 kidnapped schoolgirls. Nigeria's military has otherwise said that there was an agreement on the release of the girls.
Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau says that a release is no longer an option because the girls were converted to Islam and got married to Muslim men, and are now in their "marital homes".
The affair about the girls is the past, because I have since long time ago married them off. In this war can not fix the past, the Boko Haram leader says, according to news agency AP.
He declined at the same time that his group should have signed a ceasefire with the Government of Nigeria:
-We Have not made a truce with anyone. We have not dealt with anyone. That's a lie. We will not negotiate. What is the meaning of negotiations? Allah says we must not, Abubakar Shekau says in a video message, which has been sent to the BBC.
In October Nigerian Defence Minister Alex Badeh said that Boko Haram had accepted a ceasefire and had agreed to release the abducted girls.
A total of 276 girls were abducted from a school in northern Nigeria in April. Later small groups of girls managed to escape from their captors, but 219 girls are still in Boko Haram's custody.
