Terrorists Shoot One Of Abducted Kaduna-Bound Train Passengers, As Negotiator Says Victim In Critical Condition

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

Terrorists have shot one of the abducted Kaduna-bound train passengers, Mohammed Al’Amin, and he’s said to be in critical condition.

The negotiator between the terrorists and the Federal Government, Mallam Tukur Mamu, made the disclosure on Wednesday.

The Kaduna-based publisher said Al’Amin was wounded by a terrorist guarding them in the forest.

He said the shooting occurred on Monday during a “friendly exchange of fire at the forest between the terrorists guarding the victims and preventing them from possible escape.”

He confirmed in an interview that though Mohammed Al-Amin was alive, but he’s in a critical health condition.

Stonix News reports that Mamu had earlier facilitated the release of 11 of the victims out of the 60 passengers abducted.

“Even though such an incident that resulted in the shooting can happen, it could also be an intentional act from them for the purpose of sending a message.

“Killing of their victims is something we know they can do.

”They have threatened to do that before. Government must be prepared to take full responsibility if they didn’t act fast.

“There has been communication constantly, but government is yet to take a decision.

“I know what is in this crisis and that is why I keep emphasising that President Buhari must be prepared to take painful decisions, painful compromises if they are really committed to securing this innocent victims alive.

”With what we have succeeded in doing, the windows and opportunity we opened which there’s none hitherto, the government has the power to bring this to an end within three to four days.

“I assure them we can do it with their support and cooperation, and if it didn’t happen as long as government does the needful, I will agree and accept to take full responsibility.

“Cases of emergency such as this do not require unnecessary bureaucracy. I can confirm to you that the said passenger has been shot,” he said.

Mamu, who had earlier said he had backed off from the negotiating team for personal reasons, however, said that relations and friends of the remaining victims in the kidnappers’ den had pleaded with him not to do so.
