Physinews: The Nigerian government has released the

Department of State Security (DSS) and
supported by the Swiss government with
the Boko Haram insurgents.
However, the federal government denied

girls was a swap for some terrorists.

List of the abducted Chibok girls
According to Osinbajo, the girls are
currently receiving medical care at a DSS
facility located near the Nnamdi Azikiwe
International Airport in Abuja, as one of the
girls was carrying a child.
The Vice president said this in an interview
with State House reporters after visiting
with the freed girls at the medical centre of
the DSS located at the Airport Road, Abuja.

The vice president also confirmed that the
21 freed girls were in good health, but that
they were being taken care of in the
medical facility of the DSS.

He stated that the girls would stay at the
medical centre for some time until the
government was satisfied that they were
okay health-wise, adding that the girls’
parents would be coming to join them on
Friday, October 14.

On April 14, 2014, over 260 girls were
abducted from their hostels at Government
Secondary School, Chibok in Borno
state. But more than 50 managed to
escape on the day they were captured.

One of the abducted girls, Aminat Ali Nkeki
was rescued in May 2016 during a raid on
Sambisa forest by the military.
