Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle has said that some repentant terrorists helped the state government to secure the release of the Jangebe schoolgirls on Tuesday.
The governor who received the 279 schoolgirls of the Government Secondary School in Jangebe said they were released without paying any ransom.
He said the agreement to release the girls was reached on Monday by 4 pm.
He said, “This is the result of our peace effort and putting to shame all those saying there is no security in this country.
“We are happy that all 279 have safely returned, they will undergo medical checks and given balanced diets to recuperate by the state government before they are handed back to their respective families.
The governor further pleaded with parents to let their children remain in schools as the state government will provide more security.
“I want to appeal to parents not to remove their children from school as a result of this, we will ensure additional security in all the schools.
“We thank all media outlets for their support throughout these trying times,” the governor added.
