Sadiq Ango Abdullahi, son of the convener of Northern Elders Forum, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, has pleaded with the Federal Government to rescue him and others kidnapped and held captive by terrorists who attacked a Kaduna-Abuja train over two months ago.
Sadiq made the plea in a fresh video released by the terrorists.
He said in the video, “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.”
Another captive, female, who said she was a classmate of Vice-President Osinbajo at the Law School, cried in the video, “My name is Gladys. I’m pleading particularly to Professor Yemi Osinbajo who was my classmate 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’m pleading. We are all sick. Right now I’m 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 said subbing.
About 62 of them were the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers abducted by bandits in Kaduna on March 28, 2022.
The terrorists believed to be members of Ansaru, shot and killed 9 passengers and injured many during the attack on the train.
They have released several videos of the victims appealing to the government to come to their rescue.
In the latest video, a masked terrorist carrying an AK 47, was seen giving instructions to the captives.
“The government could either listen to the captives or abandon them,” the masked terrorist said.
