Terrorists released a video of kidnapped passengers in the Abuja-Kaduna train attack.
A group of terrorists who attacked the Kaduna-Abuja train and kidnapped several passengers have released a video showing the victims in their captivity.
Though no specific ransom was demanded for the passengers, the abductees pleaded with the government in the 2 minute, 20 second video to cooperate with the terrorists so that they could be released.
One of the passengers who is a student, pleaded with the government to rescue them.
According to her: ” I’m talking on behalf of all the students the Government should please come to our aid.”
She was asked which school she attends by the interviewer.
In her response she said; “I’m a student of Kaduna State University.”
She was asked about her course and replied “Agriculture.”
In the video, one of the INEC employees who was kidnapped also speaks.
According to her: “In my own case I’m a staff of INEC I’m pleading with the government to come to our rescue.”
The video, as obtained by MandyNews on the EONS Intelligence Twitter page, shows the interviewer speaking fluent English.
According to the report sighted by MandyNews, this group may not be the usual terrorists targeting Nigeria’s north-west.
The Eons Intelligence said that a foreigner, probably from India or the West Indies, was also seen in the video, implying that foreigners were among those kidnapped.
In the video, victims take turns reading from an edited script, pleading with the government to help them by granting the terrorists’ demands.
The group’s request, together with the video editing and weapon handling in the background, all point to a more well-coordinated operation.
Notable terrorists operating in Kaduna, Katsina, Niger, Sokoto, and Kebbi, based on what we saw or heard on video, are mostly illiterates who can not comprehend, much less speak, English.
