The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed disclosed this in Lagos at a media briefing to give update and clarifications on the release of the schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe state. This is especially because sources involved in the negotiations told Daily Trust that the girls' release has opened a window into more talks to ensure that Boko Haram, or at least its Abu Musab Albarnawi faction, accepts a ceasefire and lays down its arms.

"Nobody was contacting me, I did not talk to anyone, no one told me about the situation", he said. "This strategy paid off as the girls have been released without any incidents", the President added.
According to the BBC Hausa Service, security forces confirmed to the girl's father that Leah was released and was on her way to Dapchi to meet with her parents on Saturday.
