Eighty-two out of the 250 Chibok girls that were kidnapped sometime in 2014 have been released.
Quoting a direct information allegedly obtained from “a top military source,” online medium, Sahara Reporters, said the girls, numbering 82 or thereabouts, were released after negotiations between the Islamist group and the Federal Government.
The medium wrote: “Our source revealed that the 82 girls who just regained their freedom are currently in Banki town in Borno State, awaiting airlift to an unknown destination.
“The source added that once the girls are secured in a new location, they would be debriefed, undergo psychological and medical test and then be reunited with their families.”
It may be recalled that Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls from the Borno town of Chibok in 2014; and since then, hundreds more women and children have been kidnapped, while several hundreds more people have been killed and farm lands ravaged by the terrorist group.
