Another Nigerian schoolgirl from the kidnapped group known as the "Chibok girls" has escaped from her captivity by Islamist insurgency Boko Haram, a presidential spokesman said on Wednesday.
The 82 girls freed by Boko Haram on Saturday after being held captive for three years are still waiting to be reunited with their families, while all the girls found last year will be heading back to school in September, Nigerian officials said.
Nigeria thanked Switzerland and the International Committee of the Red Cross for helping secure the release of the 82 girls after "lengthy negotiations", the presidency said in a statement.
A faction of the militant group released 21 of the girls on Thursday after the Red Cross and the Swiss government brokered a deal.
