The abducted female students of Zamfara College of Art and Science have pleaded with Dauda Lawal-led administration to rescue them from being married off by their adductors.
Idris Mohammed, a conflict reporter familiar with the matter said the students were kidnapped earlier this year, adding the terror group placed a N50 million ransom on them.
In a video tweeted by Makama Zagazola, a counterinsurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad region, one of the girls while pleading and crying at a gun point, said they have been in captivity since the past administration of Bello Matwalle who failed to rescue them.
“For God’s sake, our mothers, we are in big trouble. We have been here since the administration of the former government,” she saidamid tears. “We have spent 174 days inside forest; that is almost six months.”
She added: “For the sake of God, our mothers we have no one apart from you. Come and rescue us. The former governor could not rescue us, we are begging the new government of Dauda Lawal Dare to help us.
“I am an orphan, my father is dead, please help us for God’s sake. My mother has no resources, please help us. These guys have vowed to marry us within a week.”
The other three girl echoed the same words, begging the government to come to their aid.
This pleas come as the state government said it would not enter into a truce with the terrorists.
The Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Abubakar Nakwada, stated this while addressing newsmen in Gusau.
According to him, the current administration has no intention of engaging any leader of bandits or their agent in any discussion, whatsoever, in the name of a peace deal that has never worked before.
