Zamfara Council of Chiefs has described last Friday’s abduction of over 300 female students from Government Girls Secondary School (GGSS), Jangabe as a calculated attempt to destabilise the nation.

Chairman of the council and Emir of Anka, Alhaji Attahiru Ahmad, stated this in Gusau when he led members of the council to sympathise with Governor Matawalle and people of the state over the incident.

We are here to express our sympathy over the abduction of our children and as representatives of the people, we are seriously disturbed by the development”

“What happened is a tragedy to the whole nation even though it is not the first, but fifth after what happened in Chibok, Dapchi, Kankara and Kagara of Borno, Yobe, Katsina and Niger states” Alhaji Attahiru Ahmad said.

Responding, Gov. Matawalle, who thanked the delegation for the visit, explained that the state government’s peace and reconcilation team was working round the clock to secure the release of the victims.

He said his administration had discovered some mischief makers that were bent on truncating the peace initiative, and pledged to expose such people for the world to know them.
