One of the passengers kidnapped by terrorists during the Abuja-Kaduna bound train attack in March this year has been shot in captivity by his abductors.

The shot victim has been identified as Mohammed Al’amin and is presently in a critical condition.

TUKUR MAMU, who is the media aide to SHEIKH AHMAD GUMI, who has been the go between the Federal Government and the terrorists disclosed the development to news men.

Brave Views recalls that the negotiator facilitated the release of 11 of the passengers.

He said: “I can confirm to you that the said passenger has been shot and the information is credible. It could also be intentional from them for the purpose of sending a message. Killing of their victims is something we know they can do. They have threatened to do that before.

He said the government must be prepared to take full responsibility, if they fail to act on time.

MAMU said there has been constant communication but however, regretted that government was yet to take action.

“I know what is in this crisis and that is why I keep emphasising that President Buhari must be prepared to take painful compromises; if they are really committed to securing these innocent victims alive.

“With what we have succeeded in doing, the windows and opportunity we opened, which there was none hitherto, the government has the power to bring this to an end within three to four days.

“I assure them we can do it with their support and cooperation and, if it didn’t happen as long as government do the needful I will agree and accept to take full responsibility.

“Cases of emergency such as this doesn’t require unnecessary bureaucracy”.
