Also, Malam Bashir Manzo, the Chairman, Parents Association of the Dapchi Abducted Girls, said that they were happy over the development.

In a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, Atiku said he was gladdened by the return of the girls, adding that some families who had been heartbroken would now have their tears wiped.

One of the soldiers told PREMIUM TIMES that the girls are being taken to the Theater command headquarters in Maiduguri where they would be received by some ministers sent by President Muhammadu Buhari.

"All of them were released". This incident began on February 19, when terrorists connected with the Nigerian militant group entered the Government Girls Science and Technical College in the town of Dapchi.

DAILY POST reported earlier that 105 of the abducted schoolgirls have been released by their abductors with 5 of them reportedly dead.

Boko Haram has waged a nine-year insurgency in northeast Nigeria and neighboring states that has seen tens of thousands of people killed, more than 2 million displaced and thousands abducted.

"They assembled the girls and talked to them for some few minutes and left without any confrontation", said another resident, Kachallah Musa. Many had been forced to marry their captors and had children fathered by them. Human rights organisation Amnesty International on Monday blamed the Nigerian security forces for failing to act on warnings about a convoy of Boko Haram fighters heading towards Dapchi. Commentators feared the Dapchi girls had been taken for ransom, after Boko Haram received millions of euros for the release of some of the Chibok girls a year ago.

"The only condition they gave us is not to release (the girls) to the military but release them in the town of Dapchi without the military presence". "But what I have been told is that 91 girls and one boy have been documented". "They (the militants). said we should not flee".

Atiku called for a more permanent solution to the problem of kidnapping of girls from schools.

"I am so happy because Ummi is fine", he told CNN.
