See Names Of 82 Freed Chibok Girls
The list of the 82 abducted Chibok girls that were freed by the Boko Haram sect on has been released.
According to the presidency, the girls were released in a prisoner swap deal after spending over three years in the hands of Boko Haram.
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday hailed the release of the 82 school girls taken from their school's dormitory on April 14, 2014, but expressed concern over the “price” reportedly paid for their freedom.
In a statement by the spokesman for the party's Caretaker Committee, Mr Dayo Adeyeye, the PDP said: “What is, however, of great concern is the price paid to secure the release of the girls.
“According to reports, the girls were released in exchange for the release of suspected Boko Haram terrorists being held by the government.
“If that is the Case, we say it’s a heavy price to pay and an unusual one at that”.
