A bulk of the schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram from Government Girls Science Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state, were released on Wednesday.
The schoolgirls, 110, were abducted on February 19 but only 91 have been confirmed released by the federal government.
While some Nigerians expressed delight over their return, others accused the government of playing politics with the abduction.
Below are some of the tweets.

It will be foolish to commend anybody for the release of #DapchiGirls because they ought not be captured in the first place. There were so many warnings before the capture yet no action was taken despite the experience of #ChibokGirls

It must have taken a lot to return the #DapchiGirls in terms of logistics. It would be great to know what Nigeria had to give/do this time to have these girls returned. We are glad they are back but let’s not miss a chance to learn how to do better.

Nigeria is the only country where you hail a kid for packing up the plates he broke and putting them in the dustbin. #Dapchigirls

They want to divert public attention from the growing insecurity in Benue, Taraba, Zamfara and other states where deaths has been going nonstop due to farmers and herdsmen feud and divert public resources. But Nigerians can't be fooled the second time #DapchiGirls #Dapchi

Taking a moment to just rejoice with the parents of the 76 returned #DapchiGirls. And holding on to hope for the remaining 34.

My question before celebrating the release of #DapchiGirls is; "Who ordered the withdrawal of security from Dapchi?"
