Sunday, 16 Nov 2014 08:42 AM

The Nigerian army says it has regained control of Chibok, the northeastern town where more than 200 schoolgirls were kidnapped by Islamic extremists more than six months ago.

Chibok was seized by the militants Thursday but the army says it dislodged them on Saturday.

Nigerian army spokesman Brigadier General Olajide Olaleye told the Associated Press that Chibok is firmly in the hands of the Nigerian army. He said there are no insurgents left in Chibok and he encouraged residents to return to their homes.
