Boko Haram Islamists free 76 abducted schoolgirls in Nigeria after kidnapping 110 students a month ago

Boko Haram Islamists who kidnapped 110 schoolgirls in northeast Nigeria just over a month ago have returned 76 of the students to the town.

The schoolgirls were returned to Dapchi by Boko Haram early Wednesday morning following negotiations between the Nigerian government and the ISIS-affiliated militant group.

Work is now ongoing to secure the safe return of the remaining 34 girls.
