General Garba made the appeal when the Governor who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Ahmed Ibrahim Matane paid him a sympathy visit in his house in Kaduna.

Speaking through his brother, Garba said he has been traumatised and is having sleepless nights since his loved ones were abducted.

Garba commended Governor Bello for the visit and concern over the unfortunate incident. He urged him to do everything possible to rescue his family members and other kidnapped victims.

The Governor lamented over the incessant insecurity in the state where several people had been maimed, killed with many others abducted.

Bello revealed that the Abuja -Kaduna train attack by bandits marks another sad moment in the fight against terrorism we are facing in our dear country, while appealing to Garba and other families whose loved one were abducted to have confidence in the ability of Government to do all that is needed to be done in rescuing their dear ones.

He told Garba that he was in his house on behalf of the people and Government of Niger State to commiserate with him over the dastardly incident.

Governor Bello assured Nigerlites that his administration is leaving no stone unturned in arresting the security situation in the State, stressing that “he has directed all security agencies for the speedy rescue of the kidnapped persons and will by God grace be rescued”.
