One of the abducted victims of the March 28, Abuja- Kaduna train attack, Sadiq Ango Abdullahi, has appealed to the federal government to do everything possible to rescue them as their health condition was deteriorating.
Sadiq who is the son of the Convener of Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Prof. Ango Abdullahi, alongside seven others, made the appeal in a fresh video clip being circulated on the social media yesterday.
“We are appealing to the federal government to once again come to our aid. We have been here for 62 days.
“Most of us here are sick and we are not in good condition and every day the situation deteriorates.
“We are appealing to the federal government to please come to our aid before we start losing our lives”, he said in the video.
One of the victims who said the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo was her classmate at the Nigerian Law School, broke down in tears as she attempted to speak.
The woman who gave her name as Gladys, said her son suffers from sickle cell anaemia and called on the federal government to rescue them.
She added, “my name is Gladys. I am pleading particularly to Professor Yemi Osinbajo who was my class mate 78/79 Law School.
“You are a grandfather and a father; come to our aid because we have been here for 62 days and I have a son who is a sickler; I don’t know his condition now.
“I am pleading that the federal government and Rotimi Amaechi who is the minister of transportation to please come to our assistance.
“I am pleading. We are all sick, right now I am even sick too. But for my son who is a sickler, I don’t know his condition. I am appealing to the federal government,” she managed to speak amid tears
The terrorists, had last week, threatened to start killing the victims if the federal government does not need their demands.
In the new video, a masked terrorist carrying an AK 47 , was seen giving instructions to the captives, the men kneeling and the women sitting on a mat.
