A former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has declared interest in joining the planned protest meant to make Federal Government hasten action to secure the release of the Kaduna-Train attack victims 95 days after their abduction.
Daily Trust had reported how those whose relatives are still in captivity threatened to take over government facilities within the state to press home their demands for freedom.
Sani, who is also the President of the f Civil Rights Congress (CRC), promised to be physically present during the protest to lend his voice to their struggle.
Speaking during a private meeting with the family members of the victims in Kaduna, Sani said, “As long as they remain hostage in hands of terrorists, the people of North-western Nigeria and the whole country will never be free and comfortable.
“What is very clear to every one of us is that the life of every hostage is more important than any price we are going to pay to get them out. There is no price that is too much to get this hostage out of captivity
“The terrorists have made their demands and I believe it is not too much for the federal government to do all that is needed to get this hostage out of captivity. You can imagine how an 85-year mother living in a forest, in a rainy season like this, having to contain to live with wild animals and serpents in the forest. Our comfort and safety are tied to the freedom of these hostages.”
He, however, commended the efforts of the negotiators and urged them never to relent until all the abductees are released.
Abdulfatai Jimoh one of the leaders and relatives of the kidnapped victims, said they resolved to embark on a physical protest to force Federal Government to act immediately and get their mothers, sisters, brothers, and children out of the forest.
