Zamfara State Governor, Bello Mohammed, on Sunday vowed that his government will do everything within its power to rescue the schoolgirls of the Government Secondary School in Jangebe, Talata-Mafara Local Government Area of the state.
The Zamfara State Governor while reacting to the incident promised to return the schoolgirls to their families.
Matawalle stated this when he hosted the council of 17 Emirs who paid a sympathy visit to the governor in the early hours of Sunday.
He further stated that he will never stop the peace process his government has put in place for bandits, adding that its the best option for finding lasting peace in the state.
“Any sabotage to the efforts we are making in the state is sabotage to the efforts of the Federal Government. The world knows our boundaries and the world knows our successes.”
The Chairman of the Council, Attahiru Muhammad Ahmad, who happens to be the Emir of Anka said people are aware of the peace move put in place by the state government.
Alhaji Ahmad while stating that the council is aware that Governor Matawalle does not control the security architecture, said the people who they represent believe that if the governor was in control of the security framework, then the incident at Jangebe would not have occurred.
“As true representatives of our subjects, we are here to register our sympathy with you and to promise you that we are solidly behind you in your bid to secure our communities.” the Emirs assured the governor.
The council called on Matawalle not to be too worried about the attack and prayed that God will return the girls back home safely.
