Terrorists Free Seven Additional Kidnapped People During The Kaduna Train Attack

Kaduna Train Attack: Terrorists release seven more kidnapped passengers

Seven additional kidnapped passengers have been freed by the terrorists that attacked the AK9 train on March 28, 2022, which was traveling from Abuja to Kaduna.

Nine people were killed and 62 people, including children and the elderly, were kidnapped after the terrorists detonated a portion of the rail track, causing the train to crash.

After more than a hundred days in captivity, the seven victims were freed on Saturday, July 9.

The kidnapped victims were freed as a result of dialogue and negotiation with the terrorists, according to Malam Tukur Mamu, a member of the negotiating team and media consultant for Kaduna-based Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi. He confirmed the development to Channels Television.
The son of the chairman of the Northern Elders Forum, Professor Ango Abdullahi, Sadiq Abdullahi, Bosede Olurotimi, Abubakar Zubairu, and Alhassan Sule are among the passengers who have been released. Others include Dr. Muhammad Abuzar Afzal of Pakistan, Aliyu Usman, and Muhammad Daiyabu Paki.

Mamu revealed that the seven hostages who had been freed had been given to the military and were on their way to Kaduna.

With assistance from Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, Mamu asserted that he was the sole person who organized and started the release of the seven abducted captives.

Because of this, Mamu remarked, “I keep emphasizing that the government has the ability to put an end to the suffering of these innocent souls in a single day.”

“This is only one person who gave up his integrity and even his life. The current security crisis in Nigeria cannot be solved militarily. Even if these people are nasty and have mistaken religious views, they are listening when you speak to them honestly. I have enough proof to suggest that they should pay attention. The 7 victims were released as a result of this power of participation and honesty.

While expressing his gratitude to the General Officer Commanding the One Mechanized Division of the Nigerian Army for his assistance during the negotiations and the subsequent release of the hostages, Mamu bemoaned the needless security checks that took up “their time in a military unit at the outskirts of Kaduna” despite the poor health of many of the freed hostages.

“The abductors’ stated destination is secretive, dangerous, and distant. A military checkpoint existed before entering the jungle. The soldiers stopped my team, but after learning what our mission, the military contacted the GOC, who instantly gave the go-ahead. The victims were given a military escort back to Kaduna at the checkpoint after being successfully evacuated after traveling over 40 kilometers through the jungle ” he put in
