In a video released by Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, following President Muhammadu Buhari's visit to Borno State, he said the schoolgirls would be set free if their members are released from prison. More than 100 of the 276 girls abducted from Chibok, Borno State in 2014, are still being held by Boko Haram.
