Some abducted Chibok girls released – Defence Headquarters

Breaking News

A yet unclear number of the Chibok girls kidnapped by the extremist Boko Haram sect in April have been released, officials said.

A top military source  had claimed that two Toyota Hiace buses loaded with the girls were driven into the Maimalari Barracks, the headquarters of the 7th Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri, this evening.

When contacted, Defence Spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, confirmed the development.

He said the exercise was still ongoing and that appropriate statement would be made soon.

The over 200 girls, mostly teenagers, were kidnapped from their secondary school in Chibok, Borno State, on April 14.

Details of the negotiation that led to the release of the girls is unclear at this time. Mr. Olukolade said such details would only be provided later.

Details later…

UPDATE: The defence headquarters has since retracted, saying it was no longer sure that the girls driven into Maimalari girls were newly rescued. Read details here.

      Mumu @wahala————————-he is still in a state of shock————-Deris God oooooooooooooooh Der is God———————monkey——–go and ask tinubu who arranged to have them kidnapped —yr when and who question—animal———

      • Wähala

        Fuul, they will soon tell us who kidnapped them, who drops food and medicine with helicopters to them in the jungle, who freed them and from where… my bet is, they were kept in pastor Oletsejafor’s university campus “Hostel Dept” all thru their ordeal. They were in the Niger Delta and not in Sambisa, na now tory begin for your moron… Hahaha chei, na laffu for kalabari!

        • Shola

          You are just too shameless. My consolation is that you can only have your say, forever but not your way. After 2019 when GEJ would have handed over, you will suffer another heartbrake. Pig

          • Wähala

            You would know about shame since you’re too shameless to use a white woman’s picture as yours… Inferiority complex is a sickness if you don’t know. Your pig keeper is in DC getting his ears twisted by Obama with evidence of his culpability, I will be here after whenever to continue sticking my foot into your black ahss you wish were red. Transvestite!

            How much are you getting from your Hausa Fulani masters?

  • AP

    GIVE CREDIT TO THE SOURCE!tHE NIGERIAN tIMES BROKE THE STORY!!!!!! NOT PREMUIM TIMES. BAD JOURNALISM.

  • mabel

    stole the story from the Nigerian Times… u should at least give them credit

  • Ola

    Good news. We are anxiously waiting for the details.

  • APA

    COPY CATS!!!!! ITS 4RM NIGERIAN TIMES!!!!!! SHAME ON “CHEAP TIMES”

  • Adebo

    Is it wrong for Premium Times to give credit to their source. We know you copied this story from The Nigerian Times. This is plagiarism….repent!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Night Crawler

    Election is near gej is doing everything to retain power, but it’s too late… Those girls will never remain the same, even education minister should be a shame of himself, girls that didn’t write waec passed. Nigerians should wake up and voteout any incompetent person out of office

  • Sola Philips

    Whoever first broke the story the point is i don’t believe the story at all.
    Boko Haram has no history of human compassion or human consideration.
    I don’t believe that Boko Haram will drive the Chibok girls un-harmed into army barracks.
    Given the routing that Boko Haram suffered in Dodunga few days ago i’m more sceptical.

    • Maria

      PDP has decided to release them.

    • Abubakar Sadiq Husaini

      We are not saying they shouldn’t release them but y is it very close 2 election,we have been suffering for the past few years now a lot of lives have been lost so what does d government wan’t 4rm us they are fooling n killing us 4 politics y.

  • Tijjani Abdul

    Why won’t the girls be released when the source of their weapons were being discovered and terminated. Thank God that South Africa became the factor that put an end to the senseless killings in the name of Islamizing Nigeria. Thank God also that Nigerians and indeed the Northerners in particular have known sponsors of terror in their region. I DEY LAF HA HA HA HA HA

    • Maria

      May you live long… out come of the meeting of three sponsors of boko haram in Chad… Jonathan, Chad president and Mr Modu Sheriff.

      • Otile

        You are praising him now because you want to be one of his wives. But you are going to undergo a horrible conversion.

  • Wähala

    This is no coincidence that Dr. Dumbo after his meeting with Ban Ki Moon and Obama at the White House, has ordered the release of the innocent girls in his political gambit with human chips. Thank God they’re free at last… hope all will return safe & sound. Back to Dumbo: After his jet full of cash has been exposed as guns-to-terrorists racket, and the viral picture of his dead commander, Abu Shekau making the round, he must have seen crystal clear proof that the game is over. No other reason explains this sudden good news better to me. Otherwise, for a clown who twice vetoed freedom for the girls (in Paris after Ahmed Salkida and according to Dr. Davis), the Americans must have irrefutable links of his culpability, given that even Abu Modu Sheriff has become a philanthropist by donating a whopping N150million to refugees of BH… na laffu I dey laff dem. Gen. Ihjirika, Sheriff and Dumbo must go the 9-miles and free all our girls, then head to The Hague to face criminal charges for crimws against humanity…

    Now that some of the captives are free, they will certainly tell us who kidnapped them: Shettima or Sheriff? A flip of the coin!

  • Maria

    PDP…finally has decided to release them.

  • the truth

    Lol people are funny.bring back our girls was the slogan,abuses were poured on Jonathan,now the girls are returning and this same people are saying it is for politics.now we are seeing the real wicked people on this forum.they would criticize even god.boko haram is been crushed lets hear them cry

    • Goodyouth

      my brotehr this is just the truth. moster like rufai is quite abt the success of our troop. heheh

  • the truth

    Shame on doom sayers.I wonder why for the past 1 week I haven’t heard from hell rufai,his facebook and Twitter page for no reason is silent

    • Kwango

      After the South Africans confiscated the money for buying more weapons for BH, the government knows that the game is over. To divert attention of the international community from the money laundering saga, they decided to release some of the girls. Don’t forget the money Modu Sheriff, a PDP member gave to BH victims came from the Federal Money Launderer. PDP Haram!

  • Sekoni Adamu

    Whether plagiarized story or not, everyone is on this site to catch the latest news and updates… Na from hell you dey get news normally? Morons! So ungrateful souls. Well done jare, Premium Times for keeping me posted…

    Meanwhile, thank GOD, the Boko Haram beasts war is falling gradually as they could not get the supply of arms expected from Mr. ayo oritshajafor his eagle air company and co…

    All thanks to the South African government for not compromising. It is now clear and all of us now know better who has been the major supplier of arms to the satanic BH…

    May GOD continue to expose all of them….

    • obeten

      how will refer to pastor Ayo as a supporter of Boko Haram when he was the same man that advocated for the designation of Boko Haram as a terrorist organisation and the whole North was calling him names, reason with your head

    • Andrew

      is christian need sharia again ?? we dont need it our sharia is only Jesus christ on the last day

  • Maryam Hali

    We ain’t fools we can never be. How comes everything is falling into place only after d arrest and d confiscation of Mr CAN jet and dollars. Why d sudden success story? Now our girls a also coming back . thank God they a back but all dis a pointers to d fact dat BH is a political machinery of d government

    • Mark Akpan

      So are you wishing that the girls should not be released? Should we not be thanking God that the girls are free? Will u be saying what u are saying if one of the girls were ur blood sister? Or are u praying that boko haram should not end? If so how are u sure its artrocities will not affect you eventually? Please let’s be reasonable for once Hajiya Mariam.

      • Wähala

        She said, “thank God they a back”. What else do you want from her?

        • Otile

          You are under the armpit of your Hausa Fulani APC master, and you know who.

    • zenny2012

      It is people like you that spell doom for this country. I wish for you what you wish others

    • Otile

      Maryam say better. An attractive Hajiya and a lecturer like you should be a voice of reason. We need peace not war.

    • A piece thrash.

    • Goodyouth

      you are a real fulani monster. cos ur brother shekau was killed u should expect more success. why does shekau not mentioned MR. CAN JET? have u forgoten that is this same man that went to abused GEJ for not being there for xtains? ppl like u and rufai rain abuses and insult on him for telling America FBI to declare BH as an international terrorist organization Calling BH a local protester expressing their mind and further demand an amnesty for them. go and sleep with ur hijap.

    Spot on….. We cannot continue this yam and goat narrative in whatever shade or color. It must be dealt with. For any Priest who is worthy of his calling, , there are no shades of grey especially when dealing with issues like corruption-black is black,; a spade is a spade. Thanks for the article
