Families and relatives of the remaining 51 Abuja-Kaduna train attack victims, on Friday, persuaded the Federal Government to fasten the rescue of the victims.
The leaders of the abducted victims’ relatives, Dr. AbdulFatai Jimoh and Dr. Ba’aba Muhammad, have via a press statement publicized in Kaduna, disclosed that though they are appreciative for the release of 11 victims, there is need for the safe return of the remaining ones who have spent more than 90 days with bandits in the forest.
The statement said, “we cannot wait to see the end of this nightmare. Our hearts were gladdened on Tuesday, 21st June 2022, when Mr. President issued fresh orders to security chiefs to spare no effort in freeing the remaining 50 hostages ‘alive and in the shortest time possible.’ Our joy will know no bounds if this presidential directive is given accelerated action that results in a positive outcome.”
They appreciated the efforts of the Chief of Defence Staff, other Service Chiefs, and well meaning Nigerians who have played good roles in securing the return of their loved ones.
