82 Chibok girls kidnapped by Boko Haram are released - Nigerian officials

ABUJA, May 6 (Reuters) - Boko Haram militants have released 82 schoolgirls out of a group of more than 200 who they kidnapped from the northern town of Chibok in April 2014, officials said on Saturday.

The girls were released through negotiations with the government, one official said, asking not to be named. (Reporting by Felix Onuah, Tife Owolabi, Ahmed Kingimi and Ulf Laessing; Editing by Angus MacSwan)
