The 82 Chibok girls freed by the Boko Haram insurgent group on Saturday have arrived Abuja to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential villa.
Femi Adesina, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, disclosed this on his Twitter handle.
He said the girls were received at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Sunday by Abba Kari, the chief of staff to the president.
“82 Chibok girls now in Abuja. Received on behalf of the President at the airport by Chief of Staff, Alhaji Abba Kyari. Congrats Nigeria,” Adesina wrote.
