At least 34 people were killed in a wave of suicide bomb attacks in northeast Nigeria. No one has claimed responsibility but many suspect Boko Haram is behind the attacks. Some analysts say the government should negotiate with the extremists.
In Nigeria, Mubi is known as the city of peace; half of the population is Christian, the other half Muslim. It has now become home to 100,000 Boko Haram refugees.
Nigerian authorities have said 82 Chibok schoolgirls have been released into military custody in the north of the country. The girls have received medical attention and are to be flown to Abuja to meet the president.
The release of 82 Chibok girls has raised hopes that the remaining 113 hostages are still alive and that they, too, could find their way to freedom as Boko Haram "bargaining chips."
The 82 Chibok girls who were released by terror group Boko Haram last week are still not allowed to see their parents. Even the students who were released in October last year haven't been able to meet their families.
