Again, Terrorists Release New Photo of Abducted Kaduna-Abuja Train Passengers
The terrorists holding at least 160 passengers of the Abuja-Kaduna train have released fresh photograph of their victims.
The photograph, mostly of women and children, appear to be a desperate move by the terrorists to force the hand of government in meeting their demands.
The terrorists have claimed that they were not interested in money, but prisoner exchange of their top commanders in government custody.
The terrorists seized the passengers who were travelling to Kaduna from Abuja on March 28 after derailing the train with a bomb.
At least eight passengers were killed in the incident, while 168 others were kidnapped or declared missing.
Ten days after the attack, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Bank of Agriculture, Alwan Hassan, was released alongside others.
Hassan, who was seen in a video released by the bandits, said he was freed on compassionate ground.
But a family member of Alwan Hassan claimed they paid N100m to secure his release, according to reporting by Daily Nigerian.
Alwan Hassan regained freedom after spending 10 days in terrorists’ captivity.
