On Thursday, during an impromptu visit to the Nigerian Defence Academy hospital in Kaduna, President Muhammadu Buhari met with the 23 passengers who had been discharged from the Abuja-Kaduna train attack.

President Buhari visits the rescued Kaduna train passengers and expresses gratitude to the Nigerian military for their valiant efforts, according to a statement released on Thursday and signed by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.

Shehu claims that after commissioning Cadets of 69 Regular Course (Army, Navy, and Air Force) of the NDA in Afaka, Kaduna State, the President made an unscheduled trip to the hospital to meet the train assault victims.

Buhari made a detour to the hospital before boarding NAF 001 to return to Abuja from the Kaduna International Airport. There, he congratulated the Nigerian military for their valiant efforts in ensuring the hostages’ safe release from Boko Haram militants.

According to earlier reports, on Wednesday at around 4 p.m., terrorists freed the final batch of captives they had captured during the raid six months prior.

Buhari responded by saying that the military, along with all other security and intelligence agencies, deserved appreciation for carrying out the operation that led to the captives’ release. He continued by saying that the world would have to pay attention since these businesses had shown outstanding potential at this time.

In response, Buhari stated that the military and all other security and intelligence agencies deserved praise for the successful execution of the operation that resulted in the release of the hostages.
