Former Kaduna Central Senator Shehu Sani, has responded to a viral video showing the ISWAP terrorist group, torturing the remaining Abuja-Kaduna train victims.
Speaking via his verified Twitter handle, Sani instructed the Federal Government to either liberate the remaining kidnapped passengers or negotiate for their release.
Recall that on March 28, a train traveling from Abuja to Kaduna was attacked by terrorists, who kidnapped passengers on board.
Since the incident, some of the victims have been freed, while some are still being held hostage by the terrorists.
However, the terrorists were seen in a viral video, brutally whipping the remaining hostages.
“The video clip of the torture of Kaduna bound train hostages followed the same pattern with that of Federal College of Agric Mechanisation, Kaduna. The difference was that women were spared. They are sending a message. The options remains two: free them or negotiate for their release.
“There has never been any successful rescue operations for most mass kidnappings of students, farmers or passengers in Kaduna, other than ransom payments by families. That is why the terrorists in the video called the committee set up by the Government as ‘Tea drinking committee’.
“When terrorists post video clips of the torture of their victims, they are waging a psychological war to bring attention to their demands. We don’t have a thick forest in the North West to warrant four months of this ordeal. Time is of essence for the Government to act now,” he wrote.
