Six persons out of the sixty-two abducted train passengers have called on the Federal Government as well as the international community to facilitate their release.
This was contained in a new video released by the terrorists on Wednesday morning.
A member of the terrorist group holding an AK-47 rifle in military camouflage with a turban was seen in the video asking the abducted passengers to speak one after the other.
The video which is now trending on social media has a foreigner who said he is from Pakistan. According to him, he was among the passengers abducted two months ago along Abuja /Kaduna train route.
The Pakistani then called on the Pakistan government, as well as the federal government and the international community to facilitate their release.
According to him, life in the forest is not pleasant saying, the earlier they leave the forest, the better.
Speaking in the same vein, all the other five abducted passengers (three women and two men) separately called on both the Kaduna State government, federal government and the international community to intervene by meeting up with the demands put forward by the terrorists.
Looking worried, one of them said life in the jungle is horrible, saying, “we are missing our family members, as well as our friends and other good things of life.”
Findings shows that the new video was released 48 hours after the group gave the federal government seven days ultimatum to release their eight children who are being held in an orphanage home in Jimeta, Adamawa State or they will kill the abducted train passengers under their custody.
