Alhaji Lai Mohammed the Minister of Information and Culture, In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday, revealed that 76 are those who have been documented so far, adding that the release of the abducted students is ongoing.
He said the girls were released around 3a.m. through back-channel efforts and with the help of some friends of the country, and that it was unconditional.
”For the release to work, the government had a clear understanding that violence and confrontation would not be the way out as it could endanger the lives of the girls, hence a non-violent approach was the preferred option.
”Within the period when the girls were being brought back, operational pause was observed in certain areas to ensure free passage and also that lives were not lost,” Alhaji Mohammed said.
