The Presidency has denied claims that 21 Chibok girls were recently released by the Book Haram terrorists.
The rumour of an additional 21 released Chibok girls made the news earlier today in the media. News got out that the new girls were released to the Adamawa state government.
President Muhammadu Buhari's Media aide Garba Shehu has however refuted these claims through a series of tweets.
According to Shehu, although the negotiations are on, the girls have not been released yet.
He confirmed that the last set if released girls were just being released to spend the festive period with their families, but there were no new returnees.
