Some gunmen have kidnapped six girls and two staffs of Engravers College in Kaduna State of Northern Nigeria. Meanwhile, Saturday marks 2000 days since the abduction of 276 female students from a Government Secondary School in the town of Chibok in Nigeria’s Borno State. To discuss these stories, Oby Ezekwesili, Richard Weizsäcker fellow at Robert Bosch Academy, Berlin joins CNBC Africa for more.
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.
Nigerian soldiers have found a schoolgirl who was one of more than 200 pupils kidnapped by Islamist militant group Boko Haram.
Boko Haram has killed 15,000 people and displaced more than 2 million during its insurgency.
The girls, released last month after Switzerland and the Red Cross brokered a deal, are now being held in a secret location in the capital.
