Shehu Sani who is a former Kaduna Central Senator in a series of tweets via his Twitter handle, on Sunday said the federal government must act now.
According to him, the Federal Government should either free the remaining abducted passengers or negotiate for their release.
Recall that some terrorists kidnapped over 60 passengers from the Abuja-Kaduna bound train on March 28.
Since the abduction, some of those abducted have been released, while others are still being held captive by the terrorists.
However, in a viral video at the weekend, the terrorists were seen flogging the remaining captives.
“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.
