Families of the victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train who have been in captivity for 77 days have appealed to the federal government not to relent in its efforts to secure the release of the remaining captive.

This came after the Publisher of Desert Herald, Tukur Mamu, facilitated the release of 11 of the victims.

Daily Trust gathered that the 11 victims regained freedom after eight children of their abductors were released to them on Sunday.

At a press conference Wednesday in Kaduna, the chairman of the families, Dr Abdulfatai Jimoh, appreciated the government’s assistance in the release of the 11 captives.

He urged the government to further help to ensure the release of the remaining 50 persons still in the bush and facing critical health challenges.

On her part, Rakiya Lawal Othman whose brother is in captivity said, “When l saw my brother, I entertained mixed feelings; while I was happy he is alive, I became sad knowing the condition that he is in.”
