abuja - More than three years after their kidnapping by the Islamic terrorist organization Boko Haram, 82 have recently been released to reunite schoolgirls from Chibok with their family. The parents were allowed to close their daughters in the Nigerian capital Abuja on Saturday. That caused emotional images. A confident president of President Muhammadu Buhari put a short video clip of the weather on Twitter.
This group of predominantly Christian students was released early in May, but was even intervened by the authorities for the first time. The security department wanted to determine the identity of the girls and young women with certainty and to rule out the victims being brainwashed in such a way that they might attack.
Boko Haram kidnapped about 270 students in Chibok in April 2014. They had to convert themselves into captivity to Islam. Some of the abductors were abused as sex slaves. An estimated one hundred girls are still missing.
