Boko Haram has released 80 of the over 200 girls it kidnapped in a secondary school in Chibok, Borno State on 14 April, 2014, according to Saharareporters.

The website quoted an unnamed top military source as saying 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 a psychological and medical test and then be reunited with their families,” the website reported.
