Eighty-two Schoolgirls recently released from captivity by the Nigerian Militant Group Boko Haram have been reunited with their families.

There were tears of joy and dancing during the meeting in the Nigerian Capital, Abuja, as daughters saw their parents and Siblings for the first time in three years.

The Girls were released after “Lengthy Negotiations” in exchange for prisoners, the Presidency said, without saying how many Boko Haram suspects had been exchanged or disclosing other details.

The Schoolgirls, now young Women, were among over 200 female students taken from their school in Chibok in the remote Northeastern Borno state, where Boko Haram has waged a seven-year Insurgency aimed at creating an Islamic State, killing thousands and displacing more than two million people.
