Released #ChibokGirls ‘to land in Abuja shortly’.

Nigerian Information Minister Lai Mohammed has been giving more details about the release of the Chibok girls at a press conference in the capital Abuja: 

“We can confirm that 21 of the girls were released, safely, to us by 5.30 this Thursday morning and they were flown to Kaduna from the location of their release.”

 

“We expect the released girls to land in Abuja shortly. Ahead of their arrival, we have assembled a team of medical doctors, psychologists, social workers, trauma experts, etc to properly examine the girls, especially because they have been in captivity for so long.”

 

“We have the list of the 21 girls but we are now contacting their parents as part of the necessary verification exercise. As soon as that is concluded, we will release the names to the public.”
