Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle has hinted at the location of the abducted students of Government Science Secondary School, Kagara in Niger State.

Governor Matawalle also harped on cooperation from stakeholders and believes it is the key to unlock success in the country’s fight against criminality.

“As you are aware, the security issue needs more commitment from all stakeholders. We have two major problems of insecurity in the north with banditry and Boko Haram,” the governor elected on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) explained.


“The security operatives are doing their best but we must all put our hands on deck to succeed. Another issue is that all the leaders who are stakeholders must come to terms with the challenges at hand and speak with one voice.”

Gunmen had on Wednesday attacked the school in Kagara, killing one student and abducting others including teachers and their relatives.
