Dreaded Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, has released a batch of more than 82 of the Chibok high school girls who were abducted in mid-April 2014. According to a military source, the release of the 82 girls came after further negotiations between the Islamist group and the President Buhari administration.
The source said he was not in a position to disclose the terms of an agreement that led to the mass release of the Chibok school girls.
The 82 girls who just regained their freedom are currently in Banki town in Borno state awaiting airlift to a more safe location.
The source added that once the girls are secured in a new location they would be debriefed, undergo a psycological and medical test and then be reunited with their families.
