Hassan Usman, one of the released abductees from the Abuja-Kaduna train attack, has affirmed that he is still a strong supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, despite spending over 100 days in captivity.

Usman was among the several victims seen in a viral video being tortured by the terrorists before his release, alongside two others, on July 25.

Speaking with ICIR in an exclusive interview in Kaduna, he admitted that though he was still a supporter of Buhari, further describe his experience in the kidnapper’s den as ‘terrible.

“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.

“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.

Speaking about his experience, Usman said, “It has been a terrible experience I must say. 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.”
