Nigerians may also doubt this news because none of the girls have been identified. Names are one of the constants in the release and rescue of the Chibok girls.
Amina Ali, Susan Ishaya, are some names of rescued Chibok girls we have heard in the past. However, Nigerians are yet to be given the identity of any of the 21 released Chibok girls. This may cause doubt in the hearts of Nigerians.
4. Shekau has been unrepentant
When the news first broke, it was met with surprise and shock. This is because the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau in his last video showed no sign of relenting or pity.
He has continued adamant in his demands of the Nigerian government, so it is surprising that this release is happening. Nigerians therefore may doubt the authenticity of the news.
