The Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle has secured the release of 26 Katsina girls from bandits in the state.

This updated was confirmed in a statement issued on Sunday, November 8, by Zailani Bappa, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Public Enlightenment, Media and Communications.

Bappa announced that the girls, aged between 8 and 12, who were abducted by bandits in Faskari, were released to the Zamfara State Government without ransom.

Part of the statement read: “The girls were miraculously discovered by the state Government and got released through negotiations held under the state Commissioner Of Police and the state Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs who are in constant dialogue with bandits in the state on behalf of the government in order to embrace peace and live a normal life.”

Zamfara State Governor Matawalle, while receiving the rescued girls, said his administration would continue to have peaceful dialogue with bandits as fire power alone cannot solve the problem of banditry in the state.

The 26 rescued girls were also medically checked before the Governor ordered for their safe return to Katsina state.
