    Three University of Maiduguri Lecturers, 10 Policewomen Released By Boko Haram

    The three University of Maiduguri lecturers and the 10 women abducted from a police convoy in Borno state have been released by Boko Haram insurgents, the Cable News reports.

    While the lecturers were kidnapped in the Magumeri area of Borno state during a trip on oil exploration, the women were kidnapped near Damboa, still in Borno, the news site noted.

    This latest development was made public by Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, who said the victims were set free following a negotiation with the sect but failed to disclose details of the negotiation.

    According to the news site, the spokesman said President Muhamamdu Buhari expressed happiness with the development during a briefing by the Department of State Services (DSS).

    The presidential spokesman quoted the brief given by the DSS as revealing that all the 13 rescued persons are in the custody of the service and are on their way to Abuja with the assistance of the Nigerian army and the air force.

    “In expectation of their being brought to the DSS headquarters, he said a team of doctors and psychologists has been placed on standby,” he said in a statement, made available by The Cable Nigeria.

    “The rescued persons may be presented to the president and thereafter released to their families, if there are no issues of security or medical concerns.

    “The President, who got step by step progress reports on the lengthy negotiations while they took place, received the good news with a lot of happiness.

    “He commended all those who in one way or the other helped in making the release possible.

    “He then urged the DSS and the Nigerian Army to intensify efforts to bring home the remaining Chibok Girls still in the custody of the terrorists.

    “The Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, assured the President that they were working hard to bring home the remaining girls and, as soon as possible, bring the Chibok girls saga to an end.”
