Zamfara State Govt Secures Release Of Over 1,000 Captives Without Ransom

1 Mins read

“We have also secured the release of 1,000 captives without paying any ransom,” the governor said during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics. “We equally received over 300 sophisticated weapons surrendered by bandits and their leaders.”

Governor Bello Matawalle of  Zamfara State on Sunday said his government has secured the release of more than 1,000 people from their captors without paying a ransom.

He explained that the government’s approach has ensured the return of some people who fled their homes due to attacks and promised to always do everything possible to make Zamfara State safe.  The governor also believes that if other governors adopt dialogue, criminality will be reduced in Nigeria.

“To me, as a leader, I cannot fold my arms seeing my people killed every day. I have to initiate anything I know I can to be able to make my people sleep with their both eyes closed,” the governor who had served as a commissioner in the state between 1999 and 2003, noted.

“That’s why I have to initiate that dialoguing with these people. And I believe that by the time all governors come together and agree on doing so, we can be able to secure our country.”
