Nigeria Chibok Girls: 'One refused to be released'

One of the Chibok girls kidnapped by Islamist militants Boko Haram chose to stay with her husband instead of being freed, a spokesman for Nigeria's president has said.

Garba Shehu told local Channels TV that 83 girls were supposed to be freed "but one said: 'No, I'm happy where I am. I have found a husband.'"

The 82 were released as part of a negotiation brokered by the ICRC.

The government agreed to free an undisclosed number  of Boko Haram prisoners in exchange.
