The girls were abducted by the Boko Haram terrorist group on February 19.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, confirmed this on phone saying, “yes, the girls are being transported to safety. We will give details later. We thank God.”
The girls’ release came exactly one week after President Muhammadu Buhari visited the school where they were kidnapped.
Buhari had during the visit last Wednesday reassured parents of the abducted schoolgirls that the Federal Government will not rest on its oars, until their wards are safely brought back home.
