"Let them be able to meet, let them be re-integrated and rehabilitated into the society and ensure that they go on to get that education".

Shehu Sani, a Nigerian senator who had been involved in previous negotiations with Boko Haram, said the girls were mostly "in good condition" and that talks to secure their release had lasted for "almost three to four months".

Boko Haram fighters stormed the girls' school on the evening of April 14, 2014, and kidnapped 276 teenaged girls who were preparing to sit high school exams.

He stressed that although it could not be categorically stated how many factions there are, there is definitely more than one faction of the insurgent group. Following the weekend release, 113 Chibok schoolgirls remain missing.

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) - Nigerian newspapers published the names Monday of 82 Chibok schoolgirls set free three years after being kidnapped by Islamic extremists, but they remained behind closed doors and their parents awaited word on whether they could see them.

Boko Haram, which past year pledged loyalty to Islamic State, has kidnapped hundreds of men, women and children in its campaign to carve out a medieval Islamist caliphate.

Teen's plea for free Wendy's nuggets sets retweet record
Wendy's chose to reward Carter's efforts which led to his tweet becoming the most retweeted tweet in the history of Twitter . It also revealed it would be donating $100,000 to a children's fostering agency, a charity he supports.

ICRC had played a similar role previous year October, when Nigeria got the first batch of 21 Chibok girls released.

Their release was negotiated between the International Red Cross and the Swiss Government.

Are they back at home?

. "We're so relieved in this case that families can be reunited". Human rights advocates believe others could be among the young girls who have been used to carry out suicide bombing attacks.

Nigeria's government rebuffed criticism by a faction of the former ruling party that it should not have made an exchange for the girls' release, along with other criticism that it waited too long to take such action.

Mr Buhari would have left earlier on Sunday to London but wanted to receive the schoolgirls, his spokesman Femi Adesina said.

"A lot of factors come into play when a nation has to decide whether or not to engage in prisoner-hostage swap", he said.
