A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Professor Haruna Yerima, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to use all available means to free the 62 passengers kidnapped after bombing of the Kaduna train by bandits.
He said the recent surge in activities of bandits was ridiculing the Buhari administration and making Africa’s biggest economy a laughing stock in the comity of nations.

He said: “Nigeria is on edge. These bandits and insurgents are becoming more daring and emboldened by the day. We can’t just fold our arms and allow them to take Nigeria to ransom.”
He said the terrorists had tested the waters and now “engage in operations that embarrass not only the APC administration but the entire country.
“President Buhari must take all drastic measures to ensure that these terrorists are rooted out before they snowball into monsters that cannot be tamed.”
