Great News: 82 Of The Chibok Girls Released
Great news last night about the release of about 82 of the kidnapped Chibok girls after three years. The girls were said to have been swapped in exchange of a couple of Boko Haram suspects after series of negotiations.
While over 100 girls are still missing, I am super glad about the release of these girls because I simply cannot imagine the ordeal they have gone through nor the anguish of their families, over the past three years.
BBC reporter in Lagos, Stephanie Hegarty, says they 82 school girls are now with the Nigerian Army and that they were "brought from a remote area to a military base in Banki near the border with Cameroon".
