23 victims of the Kaduna-Abuja train abduction are still in the forest with kidnappers, having spent over five months

DAILY POST recalls that of the over 60 victims abducted in March 2022, 23 victims whose relatives cannot afford the ransom demand of the terrorists are still held in the forest.

Many were killed at the abduction scene while those taken into the forest by the kidnappers have been released in batches after ransom payments.

The negotiator between the kidnappers and the families, Tukur Mamu, had a few weeks ago, raised an alarm over the health condition of the remaining victims.

He had also warned that the bandits’ commander intends to marry a 21 years old Christian female victim, Azurfa Lois John, yet, nothing has been heard of them.

Mamu while alerting the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the federal government of the development said he confirmed the new development through credible information at his disposal and warned that if urgent action is not taken to secure the release of 21-year-old Azurfa Lois John, her abductors would marry her like they did Leah Sharibu
