A socio-cultural group in Northern Nigeria, Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has said Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle is a terrorism accomplice if he does not reveal the identities of those who abducted the 317 schoolgirls from Government Girls Secondary School Jangebe, Zamfara State.

The governor disclosed that he knew the identities of those who sponsored the abduction on Sunday when he met with 17 Emirs who paid a sympathy visit.

Reacting in a statement on Tuesday, the ACF said it was not comfortable with the governor for concealing the identities of the sponsors.

The statement signed by the group’s National Chairman, Audu Ogbe urged the governor to reveal the identity of the sponsors.

The statement read, “We ask the governor to reveal their identity and let Nigerians be shocked or even the heavens fall.

“We also ask the security agencies to question the governor on the identifies of the criminals he is trying to hide. If he refuses to disclose their identities, he must be treated as an accomplice to the criminal act of kidnapping.

“The ACF has been embarrassed by the spate of kidnappings especially of school children spreading like wildfire all over the north. People in positions of authority that will help us out of this mess like Governor Mutawalle must stop embarrassing the north and country with careless statements on a serious issue like the kidnappings of school children.

“Zamfara State and the north are way behind the rest of the country in educational development. The serial kidnappings of school pupils in the north will only worsen a bad and unacceptable state of education in the North.”
