The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, says Nigerians will be shocked if he reveals those behind the abduction of over 300 female students of the Government Girls’ Secondary School in Jangebe, Talata Mafara local government area of the state on Friday, February 26.

Matawalle, who spoke on Sunday while playing host to 17 Emirs who paid him a sympathy visit at the Government House in Gusau, the state capital, said he has many revelations about those behind the abduction as well as those who are not happy that he is negotiating with terrorists and bandits to bring peace to the state.
