By Chiemelie Ezeobi

No fewer than 21 girls of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, who were abducted in the dead of the night two years ago by the Boko Haram sect have reportedly been found.

According to a report by Sahara Reporters this Thursday, the girls were handed over to the Federal Government after they were picked up by a military helicopter from Banki area of Borno state, where they were dropped off earlier in the day.

For now, it is not clear under what conditions the girls were released, neither were their identities revealed.

When contacted by THISDAY, military sources promised to find out.

The freedom of the 21 girls came barely a day after the global celebration of the Day of the Girl Child.
