Terrorists Release Children, Three Others Abducted On Abuja-Kaduna Train


Kaduna Train Attack: One Victim Paid N100m For His Release - Govt Confirms

Terrorists have released four children that were kidnapped during the Abuja-Kaduna train attack in March.

Naija News recalls that the terrorists kidnapped the children alongside their parents and other passengers onboard.

The terrorists had bombed the rail track, gunned down some passengers and abducted some.

Some of the passengers abducted have been released over four months.

Kaduna-based publisher, Tukur Mamur, in a statement released on Wednesday, said children and their parents were released after the intervention of Sheik Ahmad Gumi.

The statement reads, “Disturbed by the gory videos images of four teenage children belonging to the same family he saw in the last video released by the attackers of the AK9 Train, Sheikh Dr Ahmad Gumi for the first since the abduction of the innocent passengers of that train over 4 months ago has reached out to the abductors through his Media Consultant, sent Allah’s messages to them and consistently pleaded with them to consider the release of the poor children and their innocent parents.

“It was learnt that the health condition of two of the teenage children has deteriorated since the flogging incident that affected their helpless father. A total of additional 7 hostages were therefore released on Wednesday.

“The husband of the four kids is a staff of the National Assembly Commission. There was no intervention from the Commission or NASS on his behalf since the travails began.

“This is to confirm to the world that due to Sheikh Gumi’s efforts and with the support of a serving Senator from the North, (a God-fearing personality that doesn’t have any relationship with the hostages) who chose to remain anonymous that all the family of six have regained their freedom on Wednesday morning.

“Also released is a 60-year-old woman, one Hajia Aisha Hassan who was said to have been released due to life-threatening health challenges that deteriorated recently.”

The names of the six family members that were released are Abubakar Idris Garba, who is the father of the four kids, his wife Maryama Abubakar Bobbo and their eldest son, Ibrahim Abubakar Garba, who is 10 years old.

Others include Fatima Abubakar Garba 7 years, Imran Abubakar Garba, 5 years old and youngest Zainab Abubakar Garba, who is only one and half years.
