Governor Bello Matawalle has disclosed that the schoolgirls who were abducted from Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe in Talata-Mafara LGA in February has revealed that the watchman of the school was involved in their abduction.
Matawalle made the disclosure on Wednesday when he featured on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme
Matawalle said the students alleged that the bandits told them that their watchman gave them the go-ahead to come.
Matawalle said an investigation will be carried out, but he did not reveal the identities of other abductors.
“…Even the watchman of the school…. The children have mentioned that when they were there; after releasing them, the bandits were telling them (the schoolgirls) to greet the watchman for them,” he said.
“They even mentioned his name that he is the one who gave them the go-ahead to come, so he was involved.
“They have said this in front of the commissioner of police in Zamfara state. Investigation will be carried out and all people involved will be known.”
Reacting to the no-fly zone order issued by President Muhammadu Buhari, the governor said he has accepted the decision of the president, but added that he should have been consulted before the decision was taken.
“I thought the security council should invite me so that I can come inform them and give them more information that can help them to do whatever they want to do,” he said.
