- Of the released 82 Chibok girls one of them was carrying a baby according to an anonymous source

- The release of the girls has now brought the total to 105 out of 219 kidnapped schoolgirls

When NAIJ.com reported the release of 82 more Chibok girls after a little over three years in Boko Haram custody, it led to a lot of mixed reactions from Nigerians.

While many, including Oby Ezekwesili are happy and praised the Buhari government, others expressed doubt about the release and spouted conspiracy theories.

In a tweet by Femi Adesina, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, he confirmed that the girls have arrived Abuja and were received by Abba Kyari who is the president’s chief of staff.

Military and civilian militia sources in the town of Baki, close to Cameroon, said the girls left for Borno state capital Maiduguri on board six military helicopters at 6:10 am.

The presidency said the teenagers would be brought to Abuja to meet Buhari, who was swept to power on a promise to defeat Boko Haram, whose insurgency has killed at least 20,000 people in Nigeria since 2009.
