The Presidency on Wednesday confirmed the release of students of Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State who were abducted by the Boko Haram sect on February 19.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, promised to give further details on the development later.
“Yes, the girls are being transported to safety. We will give details later. We thank God,” the presidential spokesman said.
The girls’ release came exactly one week after President Muhammadu Buhari visited the school where they were kidnapped.
