ICC Note: CNN reports they have verified proof of life for 15 of the Chibok girls abducted in April 2014. The following video shows the girls stating their names in front of the camera. CNN verified the girls’ identities with parents. The video that appears to have been shot on Christmas day 2015 provides much needed hope for parents suffering from unending emotional stress and trauma, but only shows a small handful of the 219 remaining girls missing.

4/15/16 Abuja, Nigeria (CNN) – The Nigerian Senate demanded updates from the nation’s security agencies on attempts to rescue girls abducted from the town of Chibok two years ago.

Lawmakers voted unanimously Friday to have leaders of security agencies brief the Senate on the efforts made to date.
The move follows the reporting by CNN of a proof-of-life video showing 15 of the girls.
“With the video and other things brought in, we need the security agents to brief us on what they have been able to achieve,” Sen. Shehu Sani told CNN by phone Friday.
“We expect the security chiefs to speak to the Senate early next week,” he said.
Sani was the first Nigerian senator to comment on the proof-of-life video, calling it credible during an interview on CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
