The Nigerian government confirmed that 101 of the girls seized in Dapchi on February 19 had been freed.
Last Wednesday, Nigerian leader Muhammadu Buhari visited Dapchi, located 100 kilometers from Damaturu, capital of the northern Yobe State to sympathize with parents of the girls and assure them that girls would return soon.
Before his departure, Information minister, Lai Mohammed said the girls were released unconditionally.
He added that the number of released girls would be updated when all had been formally registered.
The lawmakers had argued that Boko Haram now kidnap women and girls so as to negotiate and "get money" from the federal government "just like the case of Chibok girls".
When asked how a boy came to be among the released girls as the school they were abducted from was a female school, the Minister said, "I can tell you that is authentic". It was the biggest mass abduction since the militant group took away more than 250 girls from Chibok town in 2014.
The abduction brought Boko Haram to the attention of the world's media. Residents of the town reportedly fled the scene, but the insurgents only dropped the girls off before leaving.
The secretary of the school's parents' association, Kachalla Bukar, said the girls were seen entering Dapchi in the morning.
"For the abducted girls who have been returned, and their families, this is a day of huge relief", the statement quoted the organisation's Nigeria Director, Osai Ojigho, as remarking.
Many parents were reunited with their daughters on Wednesday.
"Their abductors brought them, dropped them outside the school and left, without talking to anyone". They (Boko Haram insurgents) only had one condition - that they will return them to where they picked them.
On Tuesday, Amnesty International claimed that the military ignored repeated warnings about the movements of Boko Haram fighters before the kidnapping. "Any report that we paid ransom or engaged in prisoner swap is false", he said.
Members of the #BringBackOurGirls (#BBOG) have sworn to interrogate the circumstances of the Dapchi school girls release. He says they are now documenting the girls.
