President Muhammadu Buhari hosted the released Dapchi Girls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from their school in Yobe State on Friday.
The released girls and their parents were transported to the Presidential Villa to see the president.
President Buhari, receiving them, in his speech said he was delighted to announce their release.
He said security agencies have been directed to ensure another abduction does not take place. If it does, he said, security chiefs have been warned that it will be “viewed seriously.”
