Edo train station attack: All captives freed
All those abducted at the Chief Tom Ikimi Railway Station Ekekhen in Igueben, Edo State, along the Warri Itakpe rail corridor on the 7th of this month have regained their freedom and were released to their families respectively,
In a confirmatory press statement by the Deputy Director, of Public Relations of the Nigeria Railway Corporation, Mahmud Yakub, the feat is highly commendable as none of the victims was hurt or injured during their period of captivity and release.
In the statement, the NRC Board and Management highly appreciate the role, patience, and cooperation of the families of the victims.
They also wish to express appreciation to the security agencies, the State Government, and all those who contributed in one way or the other towards the release of the harmless and innocent citizens for their efforts.
The statement adds that the NRC Management enjoins all communities residing along the Railway corridors to be security conscious by reporting any suspicious movement that is likely to cause a breach of peace within their locality, to the nearest security agency or their community vigilante for quick intervention.
