FG failed to rescue us, I pity those still in custody – Freed Kaduna train attack victim

Barrister Hassan Usman, one of the three Abuja-Kaduna train victims released on Monday, claims the Federal Government failed to secure their release, Charmingpro reports

He wailed angrily for the remaining victims still held captive.

Usman, a lawyer, was one of 63 passengers on the Abuja-Kaduna train who were kidnapped on March 28, 2022.

He was one of the remaining 43 victims who were severely beaten on Sunday before being released, along with two others, around 11 a.m. on Monday.

He expressed gratitude to God for restoring his freedom while speaking with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), which was monitored by Charmingpro

He pleaded with the United Nations, the United Kingdom, and the entire international community to intervene in the release of the terrorists’ remaining hostages.

According to Usman, who claims the government failed to rescue the captives, families of the victims attempted to rescue them on Friday, but the government refused to allow them to continue their journey.

He went on to say that another attempt on Monday was successful, resulting in the release of the three of them.

When asked if a ransom was paid before their release, he replied, “I’m not sure if a ransom was paid to rescue us.”

He claimed that the bandits built makeshift shelters to protect them from the rain and fed them according to their capacity.
