Boko Haram’s release of captured Chibok girls was a welcome news both by the Nigerians and the international campaign team who were pivotal to the release.

However there was more questions than answers in relation to the fact that the release was only for 21 of the over 200 girls reported to have been captured 2 years ago.

Another question that remained unanswered was the rumoured ransom paid and prisoner swap which the Nigerian Authorities vehemently denied and the international committee involved in the release have remained tight-lipped on.

Regardless of what the looming questions are the fact remains the world welcomes the release and hopeful that more can be done to secure further releases of those Chibok girls still in captivity. The Red cross was said to be at the forefront of and successful release negotiations of the 21 Chibok Girls released.
