Freed Abuja-Kaduna Train Attack Victim Says He’s Still Buhari’s Supporter



A lawyer and one of the victims of Abuja-Kaduna train attack who was recently released from captivity, Hassan Usman reveals that he is still a staunch supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari.

It’s recalled that a Kaduna-bound train was attacked by gunmen on March 28 with several persons killed, injured and kidnapped.

Hassan was one of the four passengers that were released from captivity on July 25.

Speaking in an interview with ICIR, he said although the present administration has failed in the area of security, he is still a “strong supporter” of Buhari.


In his words:

“I am still a strong supporter of Buhari, but in terms of security, I can score this government below average, because one of their major responsibilities is to see that the lives and property of citizens are being guaranteed by the government,” he said.

“But as it is now, I can say that the government has failed woefully in that area. Despite the huge resources allocated for security in Nigeria, there is nothing to write home about.”

He also revealed that his experience while in captivity was a terrible one.

“It has been a bitter experience I must say,” Hassan said.


“Since when we were captured, we had to walk long miles for almost three days before we reached a camp where we were detained for close to four months and being there is a bitter experience actually.

“Since we arrived that camp, we killed more than 10 snakes and some other reptiles like scorpions or what have you.”
