The spokesperson, Defence Headquarters, Onyema Nwachukwu, did not respond to calls and text message seeking his comments on the latest allegation by the governor.

Recall that Governor Matawalle earlier in the week said he is willing to resign if doing so will bring a lasting solution to his state’s high level of insecurity.

Speaking when he featured on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, on Wednesday, Matawalle said he does not mind using his job as a sacrifice for peace to reign.

“If I know that my resignation as a governor will make the people sleep with their two eyes closed, I can resign.

“I am ready to do what will bring security. I am not power-hungry. I have been having a sleepless night to protect the people of Zamfara state.”

The governor, who has been pushing for a dialogue with bandits, also defended his stance.

He said repentant bandits facilitated the release of Government Girls Secondary School students, Jangebe, who were abducted last week.

“People are saying amnesty; it is not about amnesty. What amnesty means maybe is the federal government provides some huge amount of money,” he said.

“We are not giving them kobo; we are not giving them anything. People talk about amnesty, it’s like people think that a huge amount of money was collected and given to them.

“No single kobo was given to them, any of them who repented; nothing was given to them.”

The governor, who had earlier rejected the decision of the federal government to declare the state a no-fly zone, said: “On the decision of Mr President on the no-fly zone, I accept it. I agree with that.

“People don’t even know that Zamfara does not have an airport. So, the states that have airports and are encountering this kind of situation, what happens to them?”
