82 Chibok schoolgirls freed by Boko Haram

82 Chibok schoolgirls freed by Boko Haram

Up to 82 Chibok schoolgirls have been released by Islamist Boko Haram militants after more than three years in captivity.

The girls were released through negotiations with the government, one official said this evening.

The group is the largest to be freed after years of negotiations.

They were kidnapped from the northeastern town of Chibok in April 2014.

A military source said the girls were currently in Banki near the Cameroon border for medical checks before being airlifted to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.



The kidnapping was one of the high-profile incidents of Boko Haram's insurgency, now in its eighth year and with little sign of ending.

About 220 were abducted from their school in a night-time attack.

More than 20 girls were released last October in a deal brokered by the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Others have escaped or been rescued, but 195 were believed to be still in captivity prior to this release.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said last month the government was in talks to secure the release of the remaining captives.

Although the Chibok girls are the most high-profile case, Boko Haram has kidnapped thousands of adults and children, many of whose cases have been neglected.

For long will boko haram continue to be enriched while they use the negotiation money to purchase arms to kill our soldiers? It is now obvious that Some group of people are smiling to the banks while our soldiers are paying the supreme price.
