The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed initially told State House correspondents that the directive by President Buhari to all security agencies to do everything possible to secure the release of the Dapchi schoolgirls, who were abducted 19 Feb. 2018, has yielded fruits, and confirmed release of 76 of the 110 abducted students in the early hours of Wednesday.

He said the number of the freed girls would be updated after the remaining ones have been documented, especially because the girls were not handed over to anyone but dropped off in Dapchi.
