Okhria however assured that the federal government was doing everything possible to ensure their safe release.

He also disclosed that NRC had not commenced operations on the Abuja-Kaduna route because the corporation believed that proper security arrangements should be put in place.

He however assured that the government had set up a committee to find a lasting solution to ensure security was appropriately maintained.
