Federal Government Releases Names of Released Chibok Girls


The Federal Government on Thursday in Abuja released the names of freed Chibok school girls.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that Malam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, released the names of the affected girls in his twitter handle.

The names of the girls are: Mary Usman Bulama, Jummai John, Blessing Abana, Luggwa Sanda, Comfort Habiba, Maryam Basheer, Comfort Amos, Glory Mainta, Saratu Emmanuel, Deborah Ja’afaru, Rahab Ibrahim, Helin Musa, Maryamu Lawan, Asabe Goni, Deborah Andrawus, Agnes Gapani, Saratu Markus, Glory Dama, Pindah Nuhu and Rebecca Mallam.

Shehu, who had earlier announced the release of the girls, said their release was the outcome of negotiations between the Federal Government and the sect.

He said the negotiations were brokered by the International Red Cross, Red Crescent Movement and the Swiss Government, adding that the negotiations would continue.

NAN also reports that the Director-General of Department of State Service, Alhaji Lawal Daura handed over the freed girls to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the DSS Medical Centre, Abuja.

Addressing State House correspondents after addressing the girls, the Vice-President dismissed online media reports that the freed girls were swapped with four Boko Haram commanders.

He assured that the government would ensure the speedy release of the remaining girls in captivity.

NAN recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had solicited the assistance of the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in negotiations with Boko Haram for the release of the girls.

In May, one of the more than 200 girls kidnapped from their school dormitory on April 14, 2014, escaped from their captors with her baby.(NAN)
