Reports show that about eighty-two Chibok schoolgirls have been freed at the Borno border town of Banki following days of negotiation between the Federal Government and the Boko Haram. The 82 girls were released to the negotiators at Banki, a town on the Nigeria-Cameroon border. A military source said three Boko Haram commanders were swapped for the Chibok girls.
Spokesman to the minister of Information, Segun Adeyemi confirmed the
release of the girls on his Facebook page.
“82 Chibok girls are freed,”
he said without providing details.
Recall that in 2014, more than 200 girls were abducted in a school in Chibok, Bornu State, Nigeria.
