Federal Government has reacted to the viral video of the six aid workers abducted by Boko Haram members in Borno state.
In a statement by the Senior Special Adviser to the President, Garba Shehu, the presidency assured that it is making contact with the captors to secure the release of the innocent Nigerians held captive.
Garba said, “The Presidency has been briefed by the responsible government agency about the disturbing video showing our citizens, the humanitarian aid workers held captive.
Presidency has been given assurances that contact is being made and the captors are being talked to.
Beside these aid workers, there are some others about whom this engagement is about-Leah Sharibu, a religious leader and all the others.
These discussions have been ongoing even before this time and what this latest incident has done is to bring urgency to the efforts that the secret service is making.
Government is making contacts, in the hope that the captors will see reason to not visit hardship or even harm on these innocent individuals.”
