Kidnapped UNIMAID Lecturer Writes Wife Emotional Letter


… Calls On Govt To Meet Demand Of Abductors
By  Chibuike Nwabuko

Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Dr Solomon N. Yusuf, one of the four lecturers of University of Maiduguri abducted by suspected Boko Haram terrorist, has written an emotional letter to his wife.

He also called on the federal government to expadite action in the negotiation with the contact of the abductors as delay in doing so poses great risk to their lives.

According to Sahara Reporters, Yusuf in the letter dated Monday, September 4 called on the Federal Government to speed up its process of negotiating for their release so as to reunite with their families.

He pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to meet the demands of the abductors under the control of Abu Mus’ab Albarnawi, warning that delay in doing so would pose a huge risk to their lives.

“I want to emphasize that delay in getting our freedom poses risk to our dear lives. We never expected we would spend over 42 days (as at 4 September) in captivity because the project has presidential orders to explore hydrocarbon in the Chad Basin.”

“The government should please continue negotiating with the present contact given to them by the University of Maiduguri as a means of contacting soldiers of Khalifa under the leadership of Abu Mus’ab Albarnawi. We plead with the government to treat our freedom with all sense of urgency and sympathy so that that we can be reunited with our families. The use of force is a serious threat to our lives.”

He also extended greetings to his wife and the family of his colleagues in captives, Messrs Yusuf Ibrahim and Haruna Dashe that they were all alive, well and hoping to return home while also wanting his new baby delivered in his absence to their effort by his father, Mr Nehemiah Yusuf.

Yusuf also noted that over 70 people had died in the exploration saga and that they have been in captivity for so long and would have expected the government to work towards their freedom.

He, however, expressed his appreciation to the national body of ASUU and University of Maiduguri chapters of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) for their  effort in seeing that they are released.
