They were, however, released on Monday evening.

The governor disclosed that the students identified the security guard of the school as one of those behind the abduction.

Gov Matawalle disclosed this while featuring on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme.

He said: “The security agents in the state are aware that when we were trying to rescue these children without paying ransom, other people were behind talking to them that money will be given to them that they shouldn’t release them to the state government.

“The children have mentioned the watchman of the school, that after releasing them, the bandits were telling them that they should greet the watchman for them, they even mentioned his name that he was the one who gave them the go-ahead to come, he was involved.

“The schoolgirls have said this before the commissioner of police in Zamfara State.”
