One christian among the 110 students of Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state, is yet to be released and five others died in captivity. The Cable reports this morning.
Recall Naija News earlier reported the release of the girls in the early hours of this morning.
The girl, named Liya Sharibu was withheld by the abductors despite the release of the other victims.
Naija News learnt the insurgents returned the students in the nine vehicles which was used in abducting them on February 19.
“Boko Haram just returned the kidnapped girls this morning. They brought them back in the same set of vehicles which they used in conveying them last month,” a resident recounted
“People are scared because they do not know what the insurgents are up to.”
It is not clear if the government paid any ransom to the sect for the release but President Muhammadu Buhari had said he was open to negotiation.
He said this when Rex Tillerson, outgoing US secretary of state, visited Nigeria earlier in the month and when he visited the town to sympathize with families of the schoolgirls.
However, the federal government through its Minister Of Information And Culture, Lai Mohammed, said that the government did not pay the sect. any money.
