•Happy reunion by the freed Chibok girls and their parents.

 The 82 Chibok girls who were freed in a swap deal between the Federal Government and their captors Boko Haram have reunited with their parents.

This comes two weeks after the girls were freed by the terrorist group reportedly in exchange for five of its commanders.

The reunion took place at the Department of State Service facility in Abuja where the girls have been kept since they were brought to the nation’s capital a day after their release.

Many of the parents were overcome with emotion as they had not seen their daughters for more than three years.

Some of the parents clutched dear daughters in disbelief, some shed tears of joy, and some gathered together in prayers while weeping.

Before meeting their parents, the girls reunited with 21 of their colleagues who were released in October 2016 following successful negotiations between the government and Boko Haram.

Over 100 of the girls are, however, still in Boko Haram captivity.

The Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs Jummai Alhassan, called Nigerians to support the Federal Government as it continues negotiations to secure their freedom.
