Hassan Usman, a lawyer and one of the victims of Abuja-Kaduna train attack, says he is still a strong supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, according to Headlinenews.news investigate reports.

Recall, on March 28, 2022, terrorists detonated a bomb on an Abuja-Kaduna bound train track at Katari, a village in Kaduna state and open fire on the train. The attack result in about eight people being killed, some injured and many others were taken hostage.

On Sunday, July 24, 2022, in a video shared by the terrorists, 43 victims yet to be released were flogged, and they threatened to Kidnap President Muhammadu Buhari and Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

Barely twenty four hour after the video, three of the 43 victims were released from the custody, which Hassan Usman was among.

According to ICIR, Hassan, speaking in an interview said although the present administration has failed in the area of security, he is still a “strong supporter” of Buhari.

“I am still a strong supporter of Buhari, but in terms of security, I can score this government below average, because one of their major responsibilities is to see that the lives and property of citizens are being guaranteed by the government,” he said.

“But as it is now, I can say that the government has failed woefully in that area. Despite the huge resources allocated for security in Nigeria, there is nothing to write home about.”

He added that his experience while in captivity was a terrible one.

“It has been a bitter experience I must say,” Hassan said.

“Since when we were captured, we had to walk long miles for almost three days before we reached a camp where we were detained for close to four months and being there is a bitter experience actually.

“Since we arrived that camp, we killed more than 10 snakes and some other reptiles like scorpions or what have you.”
