Islamic State of West Africa Province, ISWAP, has released a new video showing the kidnapped victims of the Abuja-Kaduna Train Victims remaining in their captivity being flogged and threatened to be sold.
The lives of the estimated 46 remaining passengers of the Kaduna – Abuja bound train abducted on March 28, 2022 appeared to be in grave danger as the ISWAP-Boko Haram terrorists, threatened to either sell them off or slaughter them.
The few minutes video showed the terrorists mercilessly beating the victims, mockingly gave the federal government marching orders to come to their rescue before it becomes late.
“This is the last time we will urge the government to do the needful to get them freed before we either sell or slaughter them. We shall by the will of Allah bring those in power including the president, governor Nasiru El-Rufai, senators and other tyrants disgracefully here as we brought these people before us.
“By the will of Allah, Islam will reign supreme against all forms of evils whether traitors like it or not. And by his power we shall conquer all infidels and non believers till Islam prevails,” the ISWAP fighters who took turns to speak vowed.
Some of the victims in the video accused the federal government of playing with the lives of its citizens, saying, the government officials would have reacted differently if their children or loved ones were involved.
The victims who spoke in the video also accused the government of frustrating the effort of their relatives to rescue them from the hands of the terrorists.
“What have we done to deserve this maltreatment? Has it become a crime for one to be a Nigerian? For goodness sake we are here about four months ago and the government did not take any decisive measure to rescue us, does that means our lives no more matter to the government?
“Our relatives have made efforts to rescue us from the hands of our captors but at the last entry to this forest, the soldiers prevented them from coming to bail us.
“Since the federal government does not care about our lives, we are calling on the international community to come to our rescue so that our lives will be secured,” they cried.
A man in military fatigue, identified himself as one of the rescued Kuje prison inmates, said, his freedom from authorities is a sign of the victory of Islam over infidels.
The Kuje Prison escapee said that, since the federal government has failed to bring him down, Allah will use him to bring all those tyrants in a disgraceful manner similar to what happened to the train passengers.
