Train Attack: Abducted Pregnant Passenger Gives Birth In Bandits' Camp

The Daily Crucible | Thursday, April 28, 2022

A pregnant woman who happened to be one of the passengers abducted from a train in Kaduna on March 28, 2022, has been delivered of a baby while still in captivity.

A family member of the victim disclosed this in an interview with ARISE TV.

The family member told the television station that a doctor was smuggled into the camp to attend to the woman during labour.

The development raised concern as well as gave insight into the likely organisational and coordination arrangements of the terrorists because of the way they were able to move medical supplies into the forest to assist an expectant mother.

“The woman who was reportedly eight months pregnant at the time of the attack, gave birth safely after the terrorists were said to have invited the medical personnel to attend to her. The state of health of the baby is however unknown.”

“According to reports by family sources, she gave birth with the aid of doctors brought in by the terrorists. We can also report that the terrorists are demanding the release of their top commanders in exchange for the abducted train passengers,” ARISE said in its report.

However, the families of the kidnapped have continued to call on the government to secure their release, but the terrorists were asking for a swap.

The bandits asked the Nigerian Government to swap the abductees with their commanders who are in detention.

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.
