Train Attack: Buhari Commends Military Over Release of Victims
The President, Muhammadu Buhari has expressed joy over the release of the remaining 23 victims of the Kaduna train attack.
Their release comes more than six months after the attack.
The government on Wednesday announced that the remaining 23 hostages were released at about 4 p.m. They were among the scores of people kidnapped when terrorists attacked a Kaduna-bound train on March 28.
According to a statement by his spokesperson, Buhari “credited his government for resolving the issue and the de-escalation of the terrorism, banditry, and kidnapping that surged recently, giving assurances that the efforts will be sustained.”
The president expressed his happiness and satisfaction with the military as well as other security agencies for the safe release of the remaining 23 passengers.
“The nation owed the military and all other security and intelligence agencies a debt of gratitude for the successful conduct of the operation leading to the release of the hostages,” Garba Shehu, the president’s spokesperson, wrote in a statement sent to journalists.
He affirmed that the agencies had shown outstanding capabilities that the whole world would not fail to take note of.
“This country’s armed forces are as good as any. Given needed support and encouragement as we have been doing, there is no task that they cannot accomplish. “I commend them for this remarkable outcome.”
While expressing satisfaction with the eventual release of the remaining hostages, Buhari also congratulated the families of the victims for having them back alive.
According to him, the relief that comes to the nation arising from the closure of this unfortunate saga must be sustained at all times, all over the federation.
