The 82 Chibok schoolgirls freed from Boko Haram captivity have arrived at the presidential villa to meet President Muhammadu Buhari.

The girls underwent medical check-up at the Department of State Services (DSS) clinic in Aso Rock.

They were brought into the villa in two buses at 7:06pm.

They had also met with Abba Kyari, chief of staff to the president, after arriving Abuja from Maiduguri in military choppers.

Kyari had told Channels TV that the president was “extremely pleased and glad” over their release.

“Since the first set of girls were released last year, he gave instructions to all security agencies to leave no stone unturned until all the girls are released,” he said.

The girls were swapped with Boko Haram suspects.
