Boko Haram releases 21 Chibok girls: Nigerian official
Jihadist group Boko Haram released 21 kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls to the Nigerian government, an official in the president's office said Thursday.
"It's true. Ministry of Information will release a statement on the issue later," the source told AFP.
The girls were exchanged for four Boko Haram prisoners in Banki, northeast Nigeria, said a local source.
The identity of the girls has yet to be confirmed, said Bring Back Our Girls campaigner Aisha Yesufu.
"We cannot confirm anything yet," Yesufu said.
