Nigeria's militant Islamist group Boko Haram has released dozens of schoolgirls they snatched from the town of Dapchi a month ago. But their act of clemency came with a warning to parents: Don't try sending your daughters to school again.
Five months ago, Boko Haram kidnapped more than 100 schoolgirls. Four weeks later, the terrorists let the girls go. But for many of them, a self-determined and normal life seems out of reach. A report by Adrian Kriesch.
Boko Haram has released 101 of the 110 schoolgirls that the Islamist militant group abducted in Nigeria last month. The return of the girls came with a sinister warning for the girls' parents.
There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but many have blamed Islamic militant group Boko Haram. Their vicious campaign to carve out a caliphate has killed thousands and displaced millions.
More than 1,000 people held captive by the militant group Boko Haram have been freed, according to Nigeria's military. Most were women and children, although some men who were forced to be fighters were also rescued.
