wenty-one of the schoolgirls kidnapped in 2014 by Boko Haram in Chibok, Nigeria, have been freed, the president’s spokesman has confirmed.

Garba Shehu said the release was “the outcome of negotiations between the administration and Islamist militants”.

The freed students are currently with the security forces.

It also sparked one of the biggest global social media campaigns, with tweeters using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.
