11 passengers kidnapped by terrorists in the Abuja-Kaduna train attack have been released.
The terrorists that attacked the Abuja-Kaduna bound AK9 train on March, 28, released 11 out of the remaining 61 abducted train passengers.
This comes after almost three months in captivity.
The bandits had threatened to commence the killing of the abducted passengers should the government fail to meet their demands.
Alhaji Tukur Mamu, the negotiator and media consultant to a controversial cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, said the 11 victims were released on Saturday.
Those released are; Jessy John, Amina Ba’aba Mohammed (Gamba), Rashida Yusuf Busari, Hannah Ajewole and Amina Jibril, Najib Mohammed Daiharu, Gaius Gambo, Hassan Aliyu, Peace A. Boy and Danjuma Sa’idu.
Those released have been flown to Abuja on the order of the President Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), for medical evaluation and treatment.
They will later reunite them with their families.
