The leader of Boko Haram also denied he had agreed to any cease-fire with the government.

Abubakar Shekau dashed hopes for a prisoner exchange to get the girls released in the new video released late Friday night.

“The issue of the girls is long forgotten because I have long ago married them off,” he said, laughing.

Boko Haram’s kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls taking exams at a boarding school in the remote northeastern town of Chibok in April prompted international outrage and criticism of Nigeria’s government for not acting quickly to free them.

Dozens of the girls escaped on their own in the first couple of days, but 219 remain missing.

Unconfirmed reports have indicated that the girls have been broken up into several groups and that some may have been carried across borders into Cameroon and Chad.
