It's been three years since 276 school girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram in the Nigerian town of Chibok. The search operations are still going on and the families are still waiting to #BringBackOurGirls.
One of the kidnapped Chibok girls has escaped after being held captive for more than three years by Boko Haram Islamists. Her escape means that 107 of the 219 schoolgirls kidnapped in April 2014 are now free.
Parents of the freed Chibok girls are divided on how best to reintegrate their daughters back into the society. Nigeria's government says it has the consent from the parents but some are unhappy with the limited access.
Dozens of young women who were kidnapped by Boko Haram extremists have been reunited with relatives in Nigeria's capital. Authorities had taken the 82 freed Chibok girls to Abuja after their release earlier this month.
82 of the Chibok schoolgirls seized three years ago have just been released. It's reason for jubilation, says Thomas Mösch who detects nonetheless a jarring note.
