All 21 Chibok girls released were today received by the Nigerian Vice President,Yemi Osinbajo.The Vice President was representing President Buhari who was out of the country on official duties.
So on his behalf Yemi Osinbajo received the released 21 Chibok girls in Abuja this evening. Osinbajo was accompanied by his wife, Dolapo Osinbajo, Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed and other government officials.

The girls had been in captivity for over 900 days and it will be a long process before those girls can ever go back to what they were before their abduction by Boko Haram in Borno state.

There is still controversy though on the released Chibok girls.Some reports say they were exchanged for 4 Boko Haram soldier prisoners in Banki.While other reports said the girls were rescued by Nigerian military men by helicopter in Banki.

I guess only the girls can tell how they were really rescued.The Nigerian minister for information and culture,Alhaji Lai Mohammed today earlier at a press conference said the girls were not exchanged for Boko Haram prisoners.

Hmm,Nigeria,nothing is ever black and white.Governemnt Magic like Fela Kuti once sang.
