A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has told President Muhammadu Buhari what to do after the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorist group released a fresh video assaulting the remaining passengers abducted from the Kaduna-Abuja train.
KEMI FILANI NEWS had earlier reported that the terrorists, in a viral video, threatened to kidnap President Buhari and Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai unless the government complied with their demands.
The terrorists were seen flogging the remaining captives.
This publication recalls that some terrorists kidnapped over 60 passengers from the Abuja-Kaduna bound train on March 28.
While some of those abducted have been released, others are still being held captive by the terrorists.
Reacting to the viral video, Sani said the Federal Government should either free the remaining abducted passengers or negotiate with the terrorists for their release.
The former federal lawmaker stated this in a series of tweets via his Twitter handle on Sunday.
“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.
