More than 100 Chibok girls freed from Nigeria’s Boko Haram have been reunited with their families and will soon return to school.
Now young women, they were among 276 girls kidnapped by Islamist militants in 2014 and have spent months undergoing rehabilitation therapy.
Women Affairs Minister Aisha Alhassan said they are now fully rehabilitated.
They were handed over to their parents at a party in the capital Abuja.
Most of the girls were released by Boko Haram in May, in a controversial prisoner swap deal with the Nigerian government that saw five Boko Haram commanders released.
The girls spent months in government custody, undergoing psycho-social therapy after their traumatic experience at the hands of the Islamist militants.
More than 100 of the schoolgirls kidnapped from Chibok remain in Boko Haram captivity.
Ms Alhassan revealed that negotiations with the militants are ongoing to secure their release.
