Photos: Boko Haram video shows two men accused of spying being beheaded

Boko Haram released a video on twitter yesterday showing the beheading of two men they accused of being spies for the Nigerian police. The two men, identified as Dawoud Muhammad & Muhammad Awlu, were led by Boko Haram militants to a forest where they were made to kneel and confess their 'crimes' to the camera. 

In his confession, Muhammad (right) said he was a farmer from Baga and that he'd been approached by a police officer who offered him money in exchange for infiltrating Boko Haram.
'We went to see a man from Mijka and a police officer that was with him. The officer gave me 5,000 Naira' Muhammad tells the camera.
He said their mission was to spy on Boko Haram, and in exchange, he'd get 'a lot of money and will never go back to being a farmer again'. After the confessions, the militants beheaded both men and placed their severed heads on their chest. See more photos after the cut...
