Terrorists who kidnapped passengers on board the Abuja-Kaduna train have asked the government to release their children allegedly kept in a Yola detention facility.
They threatened to start killing the passengers in captivity if their demands were not met within seven days.
Terrorists attacked an Abuja bound train coming from Kaduna on 28th March 2022.
In the audio conversations between Malam Tukur Mamu and the leaders of the terrorists Abu Barra, Barra claimed that the Federal Government suspended the resumption of the train service because of their threats he said ”The government suspended the resumption of the train service indefinitely because of our threats and we repeat, if our conditions are not met, the resumption of the train service is to the detriment of the government and the passengers.
“We don’t need money. We have a good reason for doing what we did, until our demands are met none of the victims will come out alive even if it means we all die with them. They are well taken care of as you can see from the pictures we sent to you via WhatsApp but we assure you that this will not continue.
“We choose you (Tukur Mamu) to convey this important message to the government, the families of the victims and Nigerians in general because we believe you won’t alter our message and we have seen you severally with Sheikh Gumi in the forest, therefore, we recognized the fearlessness in you”.
He further explained their reasons for the abduction as a retaliation for the arrest and detention of their children by the security agencies.
“The names of our children are; Abdulrahman, Bilkisu, Usman, Ibrahim and Juwairiyyah. They were forcefully taken from our wives in Nasarawa and taken to the orphanage in Yola. (The Nation)
