Bandit treathen to kill kidnapped 🚆 train victims if their demand is not met in 7days.

Terrorists who attacked and kidnapped passengers on the Abuja-Kaduna train on March 28, 2022, have threatened to start killing the passengers in captivity within seven days if their demands are not met.

They demanded that their children, who were allegedly held in a Yola detention facility in Adamawa State, be released immediately.

The terrorist leaders allegedly spoke with the spokesman of the Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, Ɗan Iyan Fika, Tukur Mamu, over the phone.

In the audio of the conversations between Tukur Mamu and the leaders of the terrorists who carried out the Abuja-Kaduna train attack, the terrorists claimed that the Federal Government had suspended the train service because of their threats.

They explained that the government had suspended the train service indefinitely as a result of their threats, and that if their demands are not met, the train service will resume to the detriment of the government and passengers.

According to them, “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.

In the audio conversation, they said that they have chosen him (Tukur Mamu) to convey the important message to the government, the families of the victims, and Nigerians in general, because they believe he won’t alter their message and have seen him severally with Sheikh Gumi in the forest, therefore, they recognised the fearlessness in him.

According to Abu Barra, the leader of the terrorists that it’s been two months since the abduction and anything can happen to the abducted passengers henceforth.

The leader stated that their reason for the abduction is a retaliation for the arrest and detention of their children by the security agencies.

He explained that their children, numbering about eight between the ages of one to seven, are currently being held at an orphanage in Jimeta, Adamawa State, under the supervision of the Nigerian Army.

For any continued discussion on the release of the passengers and a safe resumption of the train service, they said their children must be released unconditionally, only then they will release some of the abducted victims, especially the women, while other passengers will be released on a prisoner exchange with some of their arrested comrades by the government.

According to Abu Barra, they decided to come to a GSM enabled location with one of the female victims to talk to Malam Mamu as a confirmation of their claims, adding that Mamu said he could hear her cries with a very low voice which probably indicates exhaustion pleading with him to please talk to the government on their behalf for a swift intervention on their release.

The leader threatened that within seven days if the government does not respond to their demands, they will stop feeding the victims and will start slaughtering them one after the other and if the government doesn’t respond after that, then Nigerians should forget about using the Abuja-Kaduna rail line as well as the Kaduna-Abuja high way.

Tukur Mamu stressed the need to avoid any military action that will lead to collateral damage and the loss of innocent lives.
