Kidnappers release new pictures of Abuja-Kaduna train passengers


New pictures of the persons abducted by gunmen during the Abuja-Kaduna train attack have surfaced online.

The victims were abducted when bandits attacked a Kaduna-bound train on March 28.

Eight passengers were killed during the train attack, while a yet-to-be-confirmed number of persons were kidnapped.

In one of the pictures, the victims were women and kids seated on the floor while the second picture showed men, with half of them standing and the other half seated.

Abdulfatai Jimoh, chairman of the forum of the abductees’ families, confirmed to newsmen that the pictures were just released.

“Yes, the pictures are true. They are pictures of the victims. I’ve seen them. The one of the men and the ones of women and children,” Jimoh said.

He added that the families were still praying that the victims are found safely.
