Kaduna Train Attack: Abductors Release New Photos Of Hostages

Barely a month after they attacked a Kaduna-bound train killing nine people and abducting several others, the gunmen responsible for the attack have released two photos of their hostages. the photos were posted on Facebook by Bilkisu Yero, a lecturer at the Kaduna State University.

The photos, which they released on Monday, April 25, were the third time the gunmen, locally referred to as bandits, would be releasing evidence showing that the abductees are alive. To this moment, Nigerian authorities are yet to ascertain the exact number of those abducted.

The gunmen have previously released two video footage showing some of the passengers. The abductees have remained with the gunmen for a month despite repeated calls by their relatives and other Nigerians for the government to secure their release from captivity.

As if the Abuja-Kaduna train attack was not disheartening enough for Nigerians, terrorists have launched another deadly blow in the northern state. A publication has it that some armed terrorists invaded the low-cost housing estate in Zaria city, Zaria LGA of Kaduna and kidnapped an unspecified number of citizens. Among those kidnapped were an officer of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) and his son. Sources disclosed that the evil-minded criminals stormed the area and announced their presence with sporadic shooting.
