Boko Haram releases 21 Chibok girls ahead of christmas

Boko Haram
Another set of 21 of the Chibok girls kidnapped on April 14, 2014 by the Islamist terrorist Boko Haram terrorists have regained their freedom.

A report in the evening of Thursday, December 22, 2016  by the state-owned Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN, said the girls were brought to Yola International Airport in the Adamawa State capital around 3pm on Thursday.
The report did not provide further details but indicated that the girls are on their way to Abuja, the capital city to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.
On October 25, News Express reported that additional 200 Chibok schoolgirls has been released to the country’s secret police, DSS.
“I can confirm to you that more of the girls have been released and will soon be brought to Abuja,” a usually reliable security source told the online newspaper.
The source could not confirm the number of girls released this time but assured that they were already in the custody of the State Services Services, which serves as the country’s secret police.
Two week prior to that revelation, 21 Chibok schoolgirls were freed by the Islamist terrorists.
“The release of the girls, in a limited number is the outcome of negotiations between the administration and the Boko Haram brokered by the International Red Cross and the Swiss government,” the presidency had said at the time. It added that “the negotiations will continue.”
