The Nigerian military says it does not have in its custody any of the schoolgirls abducted seven years ago in the northern town of Chibok, amid reports that some of the girls had escaped from their abductors.
Those who managed to escape are believed to be in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, although there are still few details known about how they fled.—AFP
