Nigerians in reaction to this news have taken to social media to view their opinion. While some expressed great delight on the return of the schoolgirls, others demand more explanation on the ‘sudden return’ with no arrests made, despite the heavy security agents deployed to secure the state.

However, the Federal Government has said that the release of the schoolgirls by Boko Haram terrorists was unconditional.

Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed on Wednesday said: “the girls were released in the wee hours of Wednesday through back-channel efforts and with the help of some friends of the country.”
