The parents of the 82 newly released Chibok School Girls recently by Boko Haram have arrived in Abuja, the federal capital territory to identify and reunite with the girls, two weeks after they were freed following negotiations with the Boko Haram Islamist sect.

The girls have been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) medical facility in Abuja since their returns and have being made to go through medical tests.

Mrs Jumai Alhassan, the minister of women affairs and social development, had denied reports that their parents were being denied access to the girls. She however, explained that the reality was that their photos had been sent to the parents and that they were undergoing tests.

Meanwhile, over 100 Chibok school girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram sect in 2014 are yet to regain their freedom from their captor, Boko Haram.

Also, Channels TV in a related development said that the 21 Chibok school girls who were released by Boko Haram earlier in October 2016 have reunited with the 82 of their colleagues that regained their freedom two weeks ago.

The two batches of the girls were freed by Boko Haram sect in a swap deal with the federal government following negotiations with the terrorist group.

The reunion took place today, Saturday, May 20 in FCT, Abuja where the girls have been kept by the government ever since they were set free.

The girls are part of the 276 girls kidnapped by the Boko Haram sect from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state in 2014.

In the meantime, the federal government has clarified that the Chibok girl released within the week was not one of the 276 girls kidnapped in 2014.
