The Presidency on Thursday confirmed
that 21 of the over 200 girls abducted
from their school in Chibok, Borno
State, in April 2014 have been
released.
The Senior Special Assistant to the
President on Media and Publicity,
Garba Shehu, confirmed this in a
statement made available to
journalists.
Shehu said the released girls were
currently in the custody of the
Department of State Services.
He said the Director-General of the
DSS, Lawal Daura, briefed President
Muhammadu Buhari of the development
shortly before the President left for
Germany.
The presidential aide added that Daura
wanted the girls, who were very tired,
to rest before he would hand them over
to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
He attributed the release of the 21 girls
to negotiations between the government
and the Boko Haram sect brokered by
the International Red Cross and the
Swiss government.
He said, “The release of the girls, in a
limited number is the outcome of
negotiations between the administration
and the the Boko Haram brokered by
the International Red Cross and the
Swiss government. The negotiations
will continue.
“The President welcomes the release of
the girls but cautioned Nigerians to be
mindful of the fact that more than
30,000 fellow citizens were killed via
terrorism.
“Lawal wants the girls to have some
rest, with all of them very tired coming
out of the process before he hands
them over to the Vice President,
Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
“The President takes off shortly on a
trip to Germany for a state visit. The
names of the released girls follows
shortly.”
