The FG Failed To Rescue Us, I Pity Those Still In Their Custody – Freed Kaduna Train Attack Victim

Barrister Hassan Usman, one of the three victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train disaster who were freed on Monday, claims that the Federal Government was unable to secure their release.

He sobbed bitterly for the other captive victims that were still alive.

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

He was among the remaining 43 victims who received serious beating on Sunday, before his eventual release, alongside two others on Monday, around 11 a.m.

While speaking with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), monitored by DAILY POST, he expressed gratitude to God for regaining his freedom.

He begged the United Nations, the United Kingdom and the entire International Community to intervene in the release of the remaining hostages in the terrorists’ den.

Usman, who said the government failed to rescue the captives, said that on Friday, families of some of the victims attempted to rescue them, but the government did not allow them to proceed on the journey.

He added that another attempt made on Monday was successful, leading to the release of the three of them from their captivity.

Asked if ransom was paid before their release, he said, “I don’t know whether ransom was paid to rescue us.”

He said the bandits erected makeshift shelters to shield them from rain, adding that they fed them, according to their capacity.

“At times, they even slaughtered cattle and sheep for us. Even yesterday, they slaughtered a cow and we ate; we thank Allah,” he said.

According to him, because of the government’s attitude, they (bandits) were angered and they thoroughly dealt and beat them.

“This makes me to pity those that are still with them in the forest,” he said.
