The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has urged the Federal Government to ensure the swift and safe return of abducted victims of the Kaduna-Abuja train attack by terrorists.
It also demanded compensation for those killed and injured in the attack.
Terrorists on March 28 bombed the tracks of the Kaduna-Abuja train, killing eight and abducting some of the passengers.
In its Easter Message to Nigerians signed by its President, Ayuba Wabba, the NLC said events of the past few weeks in Nigeria “has severely tested our faith and our hope.”
“The recent mass killings in Plateau State, the terrorist assault on Kaduna Airport and the Abuja-Kaduna train bomb attack that killed innocent passengers including the Secretary General of the Trade Union Congress, Musa Lawal Ozigi and Chairman of the Trade Union Congress, Kwara State, Akinsola Akinwunmi and subsequent kidnapping of passengers have come not only as a shocker to most Nigerians, but also as an awakening to the reality of the expansion of the wings of evil on our shores.
“We demand that the government must ensure the swift and safe return of all abductees. We also demand compensation for those killed and injured in the attack,” the Congress said
