Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said the Federal Government would not rest on its oars until it secures the release of the remaining
Chibok schoolgirls believed to still be under the captivity of Boko Haram.
He also insisted that for the 21 girls released on Thursday to the government no swap deal was struck contrary to insinuation that government exchanged four Boko Haram members in its detention facility to secure the release of the girls.
The VP received the 21 Chibok girls on Thursday night where they are being recuperated at the Department of State Services (DSS) medical centre located along Airport Road, Abuja.
He visited the health facility in company of the Director General of the DSS, Lawal Daura; Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Muhammed; Minister of Women Affairs; Aisha Alhassan; Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Ahmed Zanaib, among others.
Osinbajo also debunked speculations that the Red Cross Society aided government in securing the release of the girls, saying all what the renowned international humanitarian organisation did was to provide medical assistance to the girls at the point when they were released to government.
He revealed separately that the Swiss government aided the negotiations and that only one out of the 21 girls had a baby.
