Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has said that the gunmen who invaded Government Secondary School in Jangbede to abduct schoolgirls, were Hausas and Fulanis.
He said this on Wednesday during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme
The Governor said, “They say most of them are Hausa and some of them are Fulani. In fact, they even asked the school children to pray for them. So, they say they are of different entities contrary to the thought that they are all Fulani.
“Some reporters have interviewed some of the girls who have identified some of these guys (kidnappers). In fact, one of the girls told us that she knows one of them who is Hausa and used to come to Jangebe market. She promised that any time he comes to Jangebe market she will be able to identify him and point him out to the security.”
