The government says it obtained the girls’ release in exchange for captured Boko Haram militants. ‘After lengthy negotiations, our security agencies have taken back these girls, in exchange for some Boko Haram suspects held by the authorities,’ said the statement, issued by Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the President for media and publicity.
