Boko Haram Releases 21 Chibok Girls To Nigerian Government

African terrorist group Boko Haram has reportedly released 21 schoolgirls to the Nigerian government this week according to CNN. The release was facilitated by the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Swiss government, Nigeria’s government adds.

The 21 are said to be among the 276 girls that Boko Haram militants herded from bed in the middle of the night at a school in northern Nigeria in April 2014 — a kidnapping that spurred global outrage.

As many as 57 girls escaped almost immediately, but scores remain missing. Thursday’s release is the largest group believed freed since the girls were kidnapped two years ago.


The Chibok school girls have been missing since 2014 are being taken to the northeastern city of Maiduguri, where they will meet with the governor of Borno state, according to Nigerian officials.

Where are the other 276 missing girls?!
