The governor of the Nigerian state of Borno has told the BBC he has information about the whereabouts of more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls.
Kashim Shettima said he had passed reports of the sightings of the girls to the military for verification.
The Nigerian military has flown more than 300 sorties in the hunt for the abducted schoolgirls, a Major has told ITV News' Rageh Omaar.
A newly released video from Boko Haram reportedly shows the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.
The man who started a viral hashtag campaign in support of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls says it has forced the government to act.
