The Federal Government has restated its resolve at securing the release of the remaining 43 abducted Abuja-Kaduna train passengers who were taken when the train was attacked on March 28, 2022.
The 43 persons are still held captive by the terrorists.
The Minister of Transportation, Engr. Mu’azu Sambo stated this while addressing families of the victims of the ill-fated March 28, 2022, train attack who led a peaceful protest to the ministry demanding the release of their loved ones.
“The government has not been sleeping from the enquiries I have made. There are some things you do not say in public but I want you to give me time. Let me resume properly in this office and, I promise you, this will be the first issue I am going to tackle by the grace of God,” he stated.
Sambo requested details of contacts, names, addresses and telephone numbers of their reachable relatives, promising that he will be in constant engagement until every single person in captivity regains freedom and gets reunited with their families.
He also disclosed that a situation room will be created to constantly keep the families abreast of efforts by the government to secure the release of the remaining abductees.
