Bandits  who abducted passengers of Abuja-Kaduna bound train on March 28, have released the picture of a baby born by a woman in captivity.

Earlier they had released pictures of the men, women and children still in their captivity while news of the birth of the baby was first broken by a relative of the baby's mother.

The woman was said to be eight months pregnant at the time of the abduction.

The picture of the baby, released Wednesday night by terrorists suspected to be a breakaway group of Boko Haram, Ansaru, surfaced online.

The baby was clad in a thick pink dress and a light lemon sweater cap, with her eyes closed.

The captors had earlier in the week released the pictures of captives.

The Daily Crucible reports that on March 28, terrorists attacked the Kaduna-bound train, killing eight passengers, injuring 41 and kidnapping scores of others.

The terrorists bombed the rail track and opened fire on the passengers on sad day in March.

Later, the terrorists threatened to kill the abductees if government fails to provide what they want and a video of the victims surfaced online afterwards.

The terror attack on the train left some of the passengers dead, others injured even as the attackers abducted a number of the stranded passengers as revealed in the pictures above.

Some of the victims were at the time, hospitalised at the 44 Army Reference Hospital and their names include; Haruna Muhammed, Mohammed Modibo, Ibrahim Wakala; Abdulahi Yahaya, Ismail Saidu, Abdumalik Rasheedat, Musa Ishawan.

Others are Hadiza Umar, Aisha Yusuf, Mohammed Ameen, Abubakar Hauwau, Aliyu Sulaiman, Olaosebikan Bilikisu,Yakubu Nuhu, Mrs Leola Abdulbasit and Umar Mohammed.
