Terrorist group, Boko Haram has released about Eighty-two out of the 250 Chibok girls that were kidnapped sometime in 2014.

According to Sahara Reporters, the girls, numbering 82 or thereabouts, were released after negotiations between the Islamist group and the Federal Government.


“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.” Sahara Reporters stated.

Boko Haram had kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls from the Borno town of Chibok in 2014. The Nigerian Army has been fighting the terrorist group in Sambisa forest resulting in the death of many people.

The terrorists have been using suicide bombers in their latest attacks.

The latest news will come as a welcome development to relatives of the over 200 abducted girls who have been missing for nearly four years now.
