President @MBuhari will receive the recently released Chibok Girls and their families this afternoon.— Presidency Nigeria (@NGRPresident) October 19, 2016
In April 2016, 276 girls were abducted from their school in Chibok by Boko Haram terrorist. The abduction of the girls sparked a worldwide campaign #BringBackOurGirls calling for the release of the girls. Two years later, 21 of the Chibok girls were returned by the Department of State Services (DSS) with the help of the government of Switzerland and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
