The 82 Chibok Schoolgirls released recently by Boko Haram will be reunited with their parents next week.
According to Nigeria’s Minister for Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, the students’ parents will travel from the remote Northeastern town in Borno State to meet their daughters in the capital, Abuja.
The 82 have been staying at the Domestic Intelligence Agency facility on the outskirts of the city since their release in a prisoner swap deal on Saturday.
In another development to tackle internal security challenges in the country, the Inspector General of Police is seeking approval for recruitment of additional 150, 000 police officers.
This is coming as Acting President Yemi Osinbajo declared open a two-day National Security Summit in Abuja.
