Kaduna train attack: Terrorists release abducted pregnant woman

The pregnant woman kidnapped during a terrorist attack on a Kaduna-bound train last month has been released.

Terrorists attacked a train bound for Kaduna from Abuja on March 28 after bombing the rail route.

During the attack, nine people were killed, scores were injured, and over 62 passengers were kidnapped, including two pregnant ladies.

One of the women, who was eight months pregnant at the time of the attack, gave birth to her baby safely thanks to the terrorists’ medics.

It was gathered that the other pregnant woman was released on a compassionate ground by the terrorist group suspected to be Ansaru Islamic sect, a breakaway of the Boko Haram sect.

In an exclusive video obtained by Daily Nigerian, the pregnant woman seen in black Abaya with a face mask, called on the Federal Government to negotiate with bandits. 

According to the woman, she and other victims were fed well and given medication by the terrorists.  

“I call on the government to have mercy on these people the way they have mercy on us,” the woman said in Hausa. 

“The government should consider the plight of people in captivity and listen to their demands. Government should negotiate with them peacefully and accede to their demands. So that those still with them can be released the way I was peacefully released and reunited with my family and loved ones. Government should help negotiate peacefully with them.” she added.
