The Nigerian government has released the names of 21 Chibok school girls released by Boko Haram on Thursday, October 13.

It was gathered that the girls were released

after a deal carried out by the Nigerian Department of State Security (DSS) and

supported by the Swiss government with the Boko Haram insurgents.

However, the federal government denied claims that the release of the 21 Chibok girls was a swap for some terrorists.

Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu,

released the names late Thursday after the girls met with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

Here are the names made available by the government:

1. Mary Usman Bulama

2. Jummai John

3. Blessing Abana

4. Lugwa Sanda

5. Comfort Habila

6. Maryam Basheer

7. Comfort Amos

8. Glory Mainta

9. Saratu Emannuel

10. Deborah Ja’afaru

11. Rahab Ibrahim

12. Helen Musa

13. Maryamu Lawan

14. Rebecca Ibrahim

15. Asabe Goni

16. Deborah Andrawus

17. Agnes Gapani

18. Saratu Markus

19. Glory Dama

20. Pindah Nuhu

21. Rebecca Mallam

According to Osinbajo, the girls are currently

receiving medical care at a DSS facility located

near the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, as one of the girls was carrying a child.

The Vice president said this in an interview with State House reporters after visiting with the freed girls at the medical centre of the DSS located at the Airport Road, Abuja.

The vice president also confirmed that the 21

freed girls were in good health, but that they

were being taken care of in the medical facility of the DSS.

He stated that the girls would stay at the

medical centre for some time until the

government was satisfied that they were okay health-wise, adding that the girls’ parents would be coming to join them on Friday, October 14.

On April 14, 2014, over 260 girls were abducted from their hostels at Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state. But more than 50 managed to escape on the day they were captured.

One of the abducted girls, Aminat Ali Nkeki was rescued in May 2016 during a raid on Sambisa forest by the military.
