Yemi Osibanjo, the vice president of Nigeria, has met with the 21 Chibok girls freed by Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram.

The meeting held in the evening of Thursday, October 13, 2016 at the facility where the schoolgirls are receiving medical and psychological treatment, according to government report.

Professor Osinbajo told the girls that “the whole nation has been waiting for you.” His wife, Dolapo Osinbajo, Lawal Daura, the director-general of the Department of State Security Services, DSS, and Aisha Alhassan, the minister for women affairs were present at the brief tearful meeting.

The director general of the DSS formally handed over the list of the Chibok girls freed in a deal that government sources say involved a prisoner swap.

The federal government says the girls are currently undergoing medical, psychological and other necessary reviews being undertaken by experts, giving them care.

President Muhammadu Buhari left for Germany soon after the news of the release of the Chibok girls was announced by Aso Rock.

At least 217 Chibok girls were said to have been kidnapped from their school dormitory in Chibok, Borno State in April 2014 by Boko Haram .
