According to CBS News, 76 out of the 110 abducted girls were left in the center of town of Dapchi—their home—after fight vehicles arrived around 2 a.m.
However, there is one condition for the girls' release: don't go back to school. Newsweek reported the group released the girls "out of pity" but also warned the Dapchi residents against returning their daughters to school. After all, "Boko Haram" translates to "Western education is forbidden" in Hausa language, which is native to Nigeria.
The same extremist group raided and attacked Dapchi on February 19, where militants originally kidnapped the girls from Government Girls Science and Technical College.
A similar event in Chibok occurred back in 2014, when an Islamic extremist group captured 276 girls from another boarding school, which later sparked the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. Many of the girls, Boko Haram revealed, have been forced to marry their captors.
The federal government, particularly President Muhammadu Buhari, has deemed the schoolgirl kidnappings a "national disaster" and is working with armed forces to help bring captive girls home.
