FG Clears Air On Alleged Release Of Chibok Girls
The government, however, said it secured the release of the girls based on trust and that no member of the terrorist group held was released in exchange.
However, this came after the President, Muhammadu Buhari, had expressed his readiness to release the girls in a swap deal that the group had asked for.
The over 200 school girls were abducted from their hostel, in Chibok town of Borno State.
While some of them have managed to escape, a larger number still remain in the terrorists’ captivity.
The abduction of the girls on April 14, 2014 brought Boko Haram into international spotlight, with many using the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag to raise awareness for the campaign to find the abducted girls and rescue them.
