Twenty-one of the Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram in 2014 have been released.
Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said the girls were in the custody of the State Security Service, SSS.
“It is confirmed that 21 of the missing Chibok Girls have been released and are in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS,” he tweeted Thursday.
The extremist militant group kidnapped nearly 300 female students from a secondary school in Chibok on April 14, 2014, provoking international outrage.
More than 50 managed to escape on the day they were captured.
