Nigeria: Transport Minister, Senator Gbemisola Saraki Announces Release of Victims of Kaduna Train Attack

Tonight, 11 of the kidnapped victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train attack have just been released and are safely at a medical facility.

As grateful as we are for this positive development, we are equally mindful of the anguish of all the victims and their families, who have unfortunately endured and still enduring unimaginable trauma since the tragic incident of March 28th, 2022. We salute their courage and fortitude.

The Federal Government has been steadfast in its unrelenting objective to facilitate the safe release of every abducted passenger.

We commend the untiring effort of His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, our military and security agencies in securing this release as further efforts are currently ongoing in securing the return of all other victims still in captivity as soon as possible.

We thank Nigerians for their fervent prayers and support of the victims and families.

I can assure Nigerians that we have and continue to treat the safety of all our citizens as a top priority and are determined to restore confidence amongst the citizenry.

I pray to Almighty God that the victims will overcome the trauma of this tragic incident and I hold steadfast to the belief and hope that the remaining victims will soon be set free unscathed.
