The Thread: “It’s real” “It’s a fact” | Presidency confirms release of 82 Chibok girls and Nigerians are overjoyed

It’s been 3 years since the Chibok girls- over 300 of them- were abducted from their classrooms by the terrorist group, Boko Haram.

“Boko Haram fighters abducted more than 300 schoolgirls on April 14, 2014, but some of the girls managed to flee from their abductors. In October 2016, the Nigerian struck an agreement with Boko Haram under which 21 of the schoolgirls were released. Two others were found wandering out of the sight of their abductors last year.”

Sahara Reporters broke the news sometime last night that over 80 Chibok girls had been freed, but some thought the news was too good to be true. Soon afterwards, foreign media also began to circulate the news.

Shortly before midnight, the presidency confirmed that 82 Chibok girls had been released in a prisoner exchange with Boko Haram terrorists.
