President Buhari expresses overwhelming joy over the release of kidnapped schoolgirls. The Nigerian President says they are working hard to bring an end to these grim and heartbreaking incidents of kidnapping.

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has described as overwhelming news that kidnappers have released unharmed hundreds of schoolgirls in northwest Zamfara state.

Earlier today, state officials said gunmen had freed all 279 girls kidnapped from the Government Girls Science Secondary School in the town of Jangebe. In a tweet, Buhari says he’s pleased that their ordeal has a happy ending. Zamfara state governor on Tuesday told a news conference that “repentant bandits” helped to secure the release the girls.

Those repentant ones are working for us, and they are working for the government and they are working for security,” governor Bello Matawalle said.
