Bandits who abducted Kaduna-Abuja train passengers have vowed to abduct Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, and Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai soon if their demands are not met. The terrorists suspected to be members of Ansaru also stated that they will abduct other prominent Nigerians, as well as cause mayhem in the country.
The statement contained in a new video, the group released on Sunday morning, which is trending on social media platforms saw the terrorists thoroughly whipping the remaining male passengers of the train.
The female passengers were later asked to line up in front of the male victim passengers after they were flogged. The two minutes, 19 seconds video saw a bearded passenger who was asked to speak on their behalf saying, the terrorists told them that they did not plan to keep them as hostage for more than a week, but for the nonchalant attitude of the Federal Government.
He, therefore, called on the International Community and the United Nations to come to their aid since the federal government has failed to ensure their freedom. Also, at the background, an elderly woman around the ages of 85 to 90 was heard raining insult the federal government in the Hausa, saying, “Allah ya isa” (meaning We leave you with God).
She lamented that they voted APC and President Muhammadu Buhari with the hope north and the country will be secured but all in vein. Also, speaking in the video, one of the terrorists boasted that they will kidnap President Buhari, Kaduna State Governor, Nasiru El-Rufai and other prominent Nigerians,saying they are going to destabilise the country soon if their demands are not met. The terrorists threatened to kill and sell off some of the remaining Kaduna train passengers in their captivity for slavery same way they did to some Chibok school girls.
