Terrorists that attacked the AK-9 Abuja-Kaduna train and abducted passengers have released another batch of hostages.
Recall that the daredevil terrorists attacked the Kaduna bound train on March 28 after blowing up the rail tracks, forcing the train to derail. Over dozens of persons were killed during the attack while over sixty were abducted.
The terrorists later started releasing the abducted passengers in batches after collecting huge amount of ransom.
But on Tuesday, they released five more including a victim shot while in their custody, Mukhtar Shuaibu.
Shuaibu was shot during a “friendly fire” while in the den of the terrorists.
Tukur Mamu, the Publisher of Kaduna-based Desert Herald and Media Consultant to controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, who withdrew as one of the negotiators, confirmed the release of the five hostages.
