For the past several months, the people of Nigeria and people all over the world have been concerned about the several young girls captured by Boko Haram. While this crisis is still ongoing, some good news has been released regarding the situation. According to CNN, the group has released 21 of the captured girls to the Nigerian government. The incident has many people relieved and hopeful for the fate of some of the other young women.

The news of the release of these young women came on Thursday. CNN is reporting that 21 of the Chibok girls who were captured from their school have been handed over to Nigerian authorities. The release happened near the nation’s border, closest to Cameroon. The terms of the release have been kept very quiet, but officials are reporting that no imprisoned Boko Haram soldiers have been released in exchange for they young girls.

The crisis surrounding the young girls has been very alarming, as many of the young girls are still unaccounted for. Earlier this year, a video was released showing several of the young women, which provided their families with much relief. CNN is also reporting that the recent release of victims leaves just under 200 girls still in captivity. The Nigerian government has been working tirelessly to do what they can for the freedom of these young girls. CNN released the following statement in regards to the situation:

“We further urge the international community to continue to support our government’s efforts to rescue all other abducted Nigerians, so that parents, the Chibok community, and the world can finally put an end to this nightmare once and for all.”

The capture of the Chibok girls has been truly devastating for the people of the nation. As their government continues to battle Boko Haram, one can only hope that as many of these young women as possible can return home.
