21 Chibok girls have been released by the Boko Haram group after intervention from Switzerland and the International Red Cross.

The release of the girls is the result of negotiations between the Red cross and the Switzerland government with the militant group, although the exact details of the negotiations are currently unknown.

It is expected that further girls will be released in the near future, as Vice President Osibanjo stated to reporters upon the release of the girls, “In the next few days or months we will be able to negotiate the release of more of the girls”.

More than 200 girls were taken captive by the jihadist group from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, in April 2014.
