Former UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown has urged terrorist group, Boko Haram to release the more than 200 girls it abducted from Chibok, Borno State about 10 months ago.

Brown made the plea via a statement released on Friday, February 20 after the sect released 158 hostages.

"Now they have released some hostages, they should release them all," Brown said.

"Boko Haram are piling cruelty upon cruelty by failing to free the girls," Brown, who is now the U.N. Special Envoy for Global Education, added.

The Chibok Girls were kidnapped from their school on April 14, 2014 and most of them remain in captivity.
