Written by City Radio on August 10, 2022
Seven more kidnapped passengers of the March 28 train attack in Kaduna state have regained their freedom.
The victims were released on Wednesday morning after spending 135 days in the custody of the terrorists.
It is however not clear if any ransom was paid to the terrorists for their release.
Although the police authorities are yet to confirm the development, a member of the negotiating team, Tukur Mamu told newsmen that six of the released hostages are members of the same family, which include a couple and their four children.
The terrorists also released a 60-year-old woman, one Hajia Aisha Hassan who was said to have been freed due to life-threatening health challenges that deteriorated recently.
Others include Fatima Abubakar Garba, 7 years, Imran Abubakar Garba, 5 years old and youngest Zainab Abubakar Garba who is only one and half years.
So far, 42 victims have regained their freedom. The number of those still in captivity now stands at 35.
