Nigeria, dear native land!

21 got their freedom!

Considering that over 200 were captured, the news that 21 of the Chibok girls were released yesterday might seem a small one. But we know it is not! After 913 days in captivity, the release of a single one of these girls is a big relief and a welcome news.

Here, some memorable pictures that relive the emancipation day of the 21!
