President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the Armed Forces for the release of the remaining 23 victims of the Kaduna train attack.

According to a statement by his spokesperson, Buhari “credited his government for resolving the issue and the de-escalation of the terrorism, banditry and kidnapping that surged recently, giving assurances that the efforts will be sustained.”

“This country’s Armed Forces are as good as any. Given needed support and encouragement as we have been doing, there is no task that they cannot accomplish. I commend them for this remarkable outcome,” the President said

“In expressing satisfaction with the successful deployment of both kinetic and non-kinetic processes leading to the eventual safe release of the remaining hostages, President Buhari also congratulated the families of the victims for having them back alive,” the statement added.

“He directed that the relief that comes to the nation arising from the closure of this unfortunate saga must be sustained at all times, all over the federation.

“The President also credited his government for resolving the issue and the de-escalation of the terrorism, banditry, and kidnapping that surged recently, giving assurances that the efforts will be sustained.”

The government had announced on Wednesday that the remaining 23 hostages were released at about 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

They were among the scores of people kidnapped when terrorists attacked a Kaduna-bound train on March 28.

The train departed Abuja for Kaduna before it was attacked in a Kaduna community by the terrorists.
