Zamfara Governor Bello Matawalle has assured of his administration’s commitment to ensuring speedy rescue of the abducted 317 girls from Government Science School, Jangebe.
The girls were abducted around 1 pm on Friday from their hostel.
Matawalle, in a broadcast, said police helicopters have been deployed to haunt the bandits and rescue the girls.
The Governor said he had been in touch with security agencies and other relevant individuals and groups towards rescuing the girls.
He promise to keep families of the victims and the general public informed on the development
“As a father, I feel the pains of the parents and guardians of the abductees. My heart is with you at this moment and will always be with you throughout the rescue mission.
“I also want to use this opportunity to appeal to the parents and guardians to exercise more patience and continue to pray for the success of the ongoing rescue mission
“Despite this seeming setback, my administration will ever remain focused on its strategy of disarmament. A single bullet in the hands of the non-state rogue elements could result in severe harm to the innocent.
