The Nigerian Government has secured the release of 82 additional Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by the terrorist group, Boko Haram, three years ago in Borno State.

It would be recalled that nearly 300 girls were abducted from their dormitories in 2014 as they prepared to write their final exams.

Twenty one of them were earlier released last October after negotiations between Boko Haram and the Nigerian government.

Two other girls were found separately, in addition to those who escaped on the night of their abduction, bringing to over 50 those who regained freedom.

It is not immediately clear how many girls were released this time, but Sahara Reporters said 80 were released, and were at Banki town in Borno State awaiting airlift.
