President Muhammadu Buhari has assured families of those kidnapped by bandits in the unfortunate Abuja-Kaduna train service of March 28 that efforts were on-going to ensure their safe return.
The president who gave the assurance yesterday in Abuja, when he hosted residents of the FCT who paid him Sallah homage, said they are fully conscious of the fact that many families in the country are in a state of fear and anxiety, especially captives held by terrorists against their will; including those taken away in the tragic attack of the Abuja-Kaduna train service.
He noted that he has directed security agencies and the Nigerian Railway Corporation NRC, to immediately set up a situation room for the coordination of the rescue mission and for a minute-by-minute engagement with families of the captives, saying that government would explore every opportunity to secure the victims return alive and unhurt.
The president urged Nigerians to create an aggressive environment for criminals hiding in communities, adding that by protecting criminals from exposure, they are endangering their own security and the security of the community.
