“We will not free these 7 French hostages while our members are held and brutalised” – Boko Haram

by Rachel Ogbu


“We are proud to say that we are holding the seven French hostages,” Boko Haram member announced on Thursday in the video aired by France’s i-Tele channel with French sub-titles.

The Nigeria’s terrorist group went on to warn government officials not to use force as an attempt to rescue Tanguy Moulin-Fournier, a French man held hostage with six members of his family including his wife, four children aged between five and 12, and brother while vacationing in northern Cameroon on February 19.

The man in the video holding an assault rifle went on to say:

“We are holding them because Nigerian and Cameroonian authorities have arrested our members and are brutalising them and we do not know the conditions under which they are detained.

“We affirm that we will not free these French hostages while our members are being held in Nigeria and Cameroon.

“Force will not work in freeing them; we are ready to defend ourselves.”

According to reports, Boko Haram had previously ran an audio recording of Tanguy Moulin-Fournier in which he seemingly asks Cameroon President Paul Biya to free detained members of the group.
