The government “is in constant touch through negotiations, through local intelligence to secure the release of the remaining girls and other abducted persons unharmed,” President Muhammadu Buhari said in a statement.

Of the girls taken from their school in the northeastern town of Chibok in 2014, 195 are still missing.

More than 20 were released in October in a deal brokered by the International Red Cross. Others have escaped or been rescued.
