FIVE FRESH RELEASED VICTIMS OF ABUJA-KADUNA TRAIN APPEAL TO FG TO RESCUE OTHERS

The five released victims of Abuja-Kaduna train have appealed to Federal Government to rescue the remaining victims in captivity who were in need of food and medication.

In an interview in Kaduna,  an Associate Professor of Medical Biochemistry from Usman Danfodio University Sokoto, Professor  Mustapha Umar Imam  said the situation was terrible.

He called on governments on behalf of the others to rescue the remaining captives who were in a very terrible situation.

“Quite frankly the experience I’ve gone through in the last four months is not something I will even wish my enemy to go through .There was barely no food to eat, we were hungry for the last three and half months.We  were quite surprised in the last two weeks that they started bringing food stuffs” he lamented.

“We were OK in the last two weeks but we were very hungry for the first 3 and a half months. “

” When I say very hungry, this is an understatement. There were days that we actually ate once. Just imagine there were children 1 year old, there was a 90 year old person  just feeding once a day.You can imagine that.”

 

“When you talk about medication, I was literally the Medical Doctor on camp. I was treating  the captives as well as the bandits,the Boko Haram members. “

 

” There wasn’t medication  to be frank with you. We had on the radio somebody was claiming they would bring medication whenever it was needed, there wasn’t medication on camp.”

 

“There was a day a particular lady had malaria, you could treat malaria with one thousand naira but that lady was literally going into coma because there wasn’t  any medication for malaria. “

 

” I personally did not experience any molestation, but some women on camp  claimed there were attempts.This happened one to two weeks after we were held captive.”

 

The five victims  are Prof. Mustapha Umar Imam, Akibu Lawal; Abubakar Ahmed Rufai, Mukthar Shu’aibu  and Sidi Aminu Sharif.
