(CNN)The 82 Chibok schoolgirls recently released by Boko Haram were reunited with their families Saturday, the Nigerian government says. The former captives, now ages 18-21, are believed to have been among the 276 pupils forced from their beds by Boko Haram militants in the middle of the night in April 2014. The kidnapping from a boarding school in the town of Chibok sparked global outrage and the social media movement #BringBackOurGirls. The young women were reunited with their families during a ceremony in the capital Abuja, the government said in a statement.
