“They are undergoing various health tests before they are released to their families,” sources said.

The circumstance surrounding the girls’ release over two years after their abduction by Boko Haram is shrouded in controversy. The federal government has vehemently denied report that the free 21 captive Chibok schoolgirls were swapped with four members of the dread Islamic sect in the custody of the Department of State Security Service, DSS.

“This is not a swap. This was a release effected because over time we succeeded in confidence building. This is unique because we also used friendly approach and friendly organization and friendly countries. I repeat this is not a swap,” information minister, Alh. Lai Muhammed said in reaction to the swap report.
