“On behalf of our family, Zamfara Government, and the State House of Assembly, we thank you for this visit.
“I am happy to inform you that the state government has secured the release of over 200 kidnapped victims through peace and dialogue, initiated by the present administration led by the state governor.”
Magarya noted that the released abductees were on their way to Gusau, the state capital, and would arrive any moment from now.
Earlier, the Chairman of the Speakers’ Conference Alhaji Sulaiman, said the visit was to sympathize with the Zamfara Speaker, his family, and people of the state, over the demise of his father.
“We were mandated by the conference to come to Zamfara despite the security challenges facing the state,” Sulaiman said.
