Nigeria – Release of Chibok schoolgirls (6 May 2017)


France welcomes the release on May 6 of 82 schoolgirls kidnapped on April 2014 in Chibok by the terrorist group Boko Haram.

We pay tribute to the efforts of the Nigerian authorities, who worked to achieve their release with the support of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

France stands alongside Nigeria and its neighbors in the fight against terrorism and in the efforts to secure the release of all of the kidnapped schoolgirls.
