Freed Chibok Girls Reunited With Parents by Noblex: 6:56 pm On May 20, 2017

Scenes of joy as 82 schoolgirls released from Boko Haram see their parents for the first time since April 2014.




Parents of the Chibok girls released from Boko Haram earlier this month were reunited with their daughters on Saturday in the Nigerian capital Abuja.

There were emotional scenes at the reunion ceremony with fathers gripping their daughters in tight hugs, while mothers shrieked with joy, wiping away tears streaming from their eyes.

One beaming father picked his daughter up and swung her around in the air.

They hadn't seen each other since April 2014, when fighters from the armed group snatched over 200 schoolgirls from their dormitories in northeast Nigeria.

"I'm feeling very happy, I was dancing with her, she's very happy," said Yakubu Nkeki, whose niece Maimuna - who he has raised as his own child - was among the 82 released.

"Everyone was dancing today, even the old ones, everyone was dancing," Nkeki told AFP news agency.

"All of us had lost hope, we thought the girls would not be returned." Nkeki added.

Nkeki, who represents the Chibok parents, said that they would attend a church service with the girls on Sunday, before returning home early next week.

Nigeria's minister for women Aisha Alhassan has said that the government's goal is to have all the rescued Chibok girls back in school by September.
