Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara on Wednesday vowed that all those implicated in the killing of eight persons in Talata Mafara, Zamfara, would be exposed and prosecuted.

The governor made the vow on Wednesday in Abuja while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said that though no arrest had been made, security officials had intensified investigation into the incident with a view to apprehending all those involved in the religious unrest.

“As at the time I left Zamfara, no arrest yet, immediately the incident happened, the school authority shut down the school.

The police and the DSS are carrying out their investigations and soon there will be arrests.

The government will not take this lightly; people should not take laws into their hands.

If you say the punishment for who abuses the Prophet should be killed and you now killed innocent people.

By the way, there is a government in place, there are laws and there are courts where Islamic laws are practised in Zamfara.

So, why should someone take laws into his hands?

So, definitely all the culprits will be brought to book,” he said.

Yari, who condemned the religious unrest, dismissed social media reports that Christians were killed, saying that seven out of the eight persons that lost their lives during the incident were Muslims.

    Story, story!!!!! Same thing we heard on Ese Oruru’s case; same thing with the woman that was beheaded; but not the same thing with the Buhari dog man.
    Sir, we understand. We don’t blame you because Nigerians forget so easily and move on too quickly. Nobody will want to know if they are prosecuted or not.
