Tears and joy as VP Osinbanjo welcomes the freed Chibok girls

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

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

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.

No Swap For The Freed Chibok Girls – VP

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

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

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.
