A Pakistani and other abducted Abuja-Kaduna train passengers have pleaded with the Federal Government to come to their rescue in a new video released by the kidnappers on Wednesday.
In the footage sighted by PUNCH Metro, the terrorists, according to one of the victims, threatened that none of the abductees will leave alive if the government does not meet their demands.
One of the victims who was identified as Abdul-Muhammad Azil, a Parkistan national working in Nigeria, said he was abducted alongside 61 others and they are being treated badly.
Azil appealed to both the Nigerian and Pakistani governments to do the needful for their immediate release.
Another passenger also shared the ugly situation they’ve been subjected to.
He said, ”Peace be unto you, My name is Muhammed Eyebo, I am among the passengers abducted, on the train on the 28th of March 2022.
“I am calling on the government of Kaduna state, the federal government of Nigeria and the entire human rights groups to assist us and ensure that the demands of our abductors are met. The kidnappers said unless their demands are met, nobody will leave alive.
“They accused the government of not fulfilling its promises and they say some of their children have been abducted by the Nigeria army, They are demanding they be released in five days before they consider releasing any passengers.”
A female victim who was in tears also pleaded with the government to meet the demands of their abductors.
She revealed that she was abducted alongside her entire family.
The government are yet to make any statement regarding this new development on the Abuja-Kaduna train abduction as of the time of frilling this report.
