On April 14, 2014, 276 school girls were abducted at night by Boko Haram insurgents from the dormitory
of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok town, Borno State, North East Nigeria. Buhari-led govt, on
assumption of office in May 2015, set up operation ‘Lafiya Dole’ and tasked the military to reclaim the
northeast from the terrorists and secure the release of the abducted girls.
After 913 days in captivity, 21 of the abducted girls were released by the Islamic terrorists to the DSS
on 13th October 2015. The Swiss government and red cross facilitated their release.
Seven months later, about 82 more of the schoolgirls have reportedly regained their freedom.
