A group of the “Chibok girls” freed from Nigeria’s Boko Haram militantshave been reunited with their families.
The 82 girls, who were part of a huge group kidnapped from their school in 2014, are in the care of security services in the capital, Abuja.
More than 100 of the 276 girls, taken from the town of Chibok, are still being held by the militant group.
The 82 young women were only freed two weeks earlier in exchange for five Boko Haram militants.
The most recent group freed was supposed to have 83 girls -but one refused to leave, saying she was happy and had found a husband, a Nigerian government spokesman said.
The Chibok girls represent a fraction of the women captured by the militant group, estimates for which number in the thousands.
