Professor Mustapha Imam, a victim of the Abuja-Kaduna train attack who was released by the terrorists on Tuesday, August 2, has said that the Federal government played no role in securing his release from the terrorist’s camp.
In an interview with Arise TV, Imam said his release was entirely the work of his family members.
”Unfortunately the government did not play any role in securing my release. Everything was handled by my family. I don’t have any details of whether any ransom was paid. I want to stress that the government did not play any role in securing my release and for this reason I am really worried for those people that are left behind. There are currently about 34 people still left behind on that camp. The oldest captive on the camp is 90 years old, a female and the youngest captive is a one year old child.’
Imam stated that the terrorists are very organized and that the government should take them seriously. He added that the terrorists told them that they have spies planted everywhere who give them information.
He recounted the terrorists recently gave them N10, 000 each so they could purchase whatever they needed. He said they would in turn give the money to the guards in the camp to help them buy soft drinks, milk, beverages, bread, or others.
