Bring Back Our Girls: Boko Haram release Eighty-two Nigeria Chibok girls

82 Chibok girls freed

82 schoolgirls from a group of 276 abducted in north-eastern Nigeria three years ago, by Islamist militants of the Boko Haram group have been released.

A statement from the president's office said, the girls were handed over in exchange for Boko Haram suspects after negotiations and will be received by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Sunday.

According to the BBC, the president's office said that the girls were released in exchange for some Boko Haram suspects held by the authorities, though the number being held haven’t been disclosed.

Since the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno state, was raided in April 2014, Boko Haram had only freed 21 last October, after negotiations with the Red Cross, while more than 50 girls quickly escaped during the raid.

Boko Haram has kidnapped thousands of other people during its eight-year insurgency aimed at creating an Islamic caliphate in north-eastern Nigeria.

More than 30,000 others have been killed, the government says, and hundreds of thousands have been forced to flee from their homes
