In October 2015, 21 Chibok schoolgirls were freed by the Islamist terrorists.

“The release of the girls, in a limited number is the outcome of negotiations between the administration and the Boko Haram brokered by the International Red Cross and the Swiss government,” the presidency had said at the time. It added that “the negotiations will continue.”
