    The terrorists that abducted AK9 train passengers on 28 March have threatened to commence killing the remaining 50 hostages within 24 hours. The passenger has reached 100 days their captivity.

    This followed as the federal government has failed to release the remaining hostages since the Abductors gives a deadline. The relatives and friends of the hostages were seen holding a protest in Kaduna, demanding the release of the remaining 50 hostages.

    The Media Consultant to controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, Mallam Tukur Mamu, confirmed the authenticity audio threat.

    According to him, “The terrorists fixed Wednesday to carry out the threat because they were provoked on Monday after giving us another opportunity.

    “I was crying and pleading with them that since there is a delay from the government, they should discuss with the family members directly to negotiate the victims’ release.

    “Based on the plea, they agreed to negotiate directly with the victims’ families. But they said they are giving us till Wednesday that if there was nothing concrete from those that are interested in the negotiation, they will start slaughtering some of the victims.”

    “Saying that the hostages had spent 100 days in captivity, relatives and friends of the victim, demanded the immediate release of the remaining 50 hostages.

    The leader of the forum, Dr. Abdulfatai Jimoh, while addressing journalists, said it was exactly 100 days since their loved ones were attacked and abducted in a “journey of two hours.”

    “We have been talking to the government we have been appealing to them in the last 100 days to rescue our loved ones, but so far we have not seen much.

    “One can not imagine what our loved ones are going through in these last 100 days in the deep forest- the same clothes, no clean water to drink, no medical care. Many of them are sick, one has even been shot and injured, we don’t know his condition now.

    “It is really very disappointing. we are appealing again to the government to do all that is necessary to bring out our loved ones in the shortest time possible.

    “If you remember our loved ones spent their Easter in the bush, the Eid fitr in the bush. Today we are just three days away from Eid Kabir. We are praying they will spend the Eid Kabir with US. This is our hope and prayer.

    He added, “We want the government to do all that is necessary. We know it is possible. They can do it, they should do it, please.

    “It is a responsibility they owe us as Nigerian citizens. We are citizens of our country. We should be free to move everywhere. We should be protected.”
