UPDATED: Presidency confirms release of 21 #ChibokGirls.

The Presidency has confirmed that twenty- one of the over two hundred girls abducted from their school in Chibok, Borno State, in April twenty- fourteen had been released.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu who confirmed this said the released girls were currently in the custody of the Department of State Services.

Shehu said the Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, briefed President Muhammadu Buhari on the development shortly before the President left for Germany.

The presidential aide said Daura wanted the girls, who were very tired, to rest before he  handed them over to Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo.

He attributed their release to negotiations between the government and the Boko Haram sect brokered by the International Red Cross and the Swiss government.
