The terrorists that attacked the Abuja-Kaduna train on March 28, 2022, killed and abducted many, have released the Managing Director of the Bank of Agriculture (BoA) Alwan Ali-Hassan from their captivity.
The news of the release was made known in a viral video filmed by the terrorists.
In the video, one of the terrorists who spoke in the Hausa language said they decided to have mercy on the BoA MD in the spirit of the Ramadan season and his ailing age.
They revealed that they were responsible for the attack on the ill-fated train and will allow the man to go because of his age and in the spirit of Ramadan.
“This is the tip of the iceberg. We are not after money and the government knows what we want,” the terrorist said.
Hassan, flanked by the gun-wielding men also confirmed they were releasing him on compassionate grounds.
The BoA MD further appealed to the government to do the bidding of the terrorists so as to save the lives of others in captivity.
He said, “There are many captives with our abductors here and out of pity, they decided to release me and due to the month of Ramadan, I am appealing to the government to save the lives of others with them”.
