    The terrorists in the early hours of Friday released the oldest victim in captivity alongside three others.

    The 90-year-old grandmother, Halimatu Atta, her daughter, 53, Adama Aliyu, Mohammed Sani Abdulmaji and Modin Bodinga have reunited with their families in Kaduna State.

    The development came nine days after the terrorists released a family of six, and according to Mamu, 23 victims were still left in the forest.

    Mamu’s Statement

    The statement by Mamu reads: “I can confirm that earlier on Friday, four additional victims of the train attack were released by their abductors. The four released victims just left my office.

    “They said they came collectively to thank me for the past efforts I made to mediate on their behalf and for convincing their abductors to drop the threats of executing them and to plead for all stakeholders especially the federal government to intensify efforts as the condition of the remaining 23 victims they left at the forest is pathetic.

    This important information should be treated with the urgency it deserves. Even though I know that releasing this information will not only unsettle her immediate family and loved ones but Nigerians as a whole, it is necessary to do so to avoid a repeat of Leah Sharibu’s case.

    “I advise CAN in particular not to politicise this issue or reduce it to mere press releases as I have seen in the past but to work closely with relevant authorities to engage the abductors on her case as soon as possible before it is late.

    “I pray that in view of the uncertainties which are becoming alarming, the federal government will also act very fast to ensure the release of all the remaining victims.”
