The terrorists said the video was at the instance of the victims who begged to allow them to speak to the government.
Sadiq Ango Abdullahi begged for Federal Government intervention for their rescue, saying most of the 62 victims are sick.
He said: “My name is Sadiq Ango Abdulllahi, one of the captives of the Abuja-Kaduna train attack. We are appealing to the Federal Government once again to come to our aid.
Breaking down in tears, Mrs Gladys appealed particularly to the Vice President to come to their aid and ensure their rescue from the terrorists’ den.
She said: “My name is Gladys Moren. I am appealing particularly to Professor Yemi Osinbajo who was my classmate 78/79 Law School. You are a grandfather and a father; come to our aid because we have been here for 62 days and I have a son who is a sickler; I don’t know his condition now.
“I am pleading that the Federal Government and Rotimi Amaechi who is the Minister of Transportation to please come to our assistance. I am pleading. We are all sick. Right now I’m even sick too. But for my son who is a sickler, I don’t know his condition. I am appealing to the Federal Government,” she said.
Another victim, Maryam Abubakar, said she is with the terrorists with her husband and four children, two of whom are currently sick.
According to her: “My name is Maryam Abubakar, I am one of the captured passengers on the train with my husband and four children. We are appealing, our families and everyone that can help to please come to our aid. We have been here for 62 days in an unfavourable, uninhabitable and unimaginable condition. We have been sick. In fact, two of my sons are currently sick and there is no medical supply.”
She broke down in tears, saying, “we are appealing to the government to come to our aid.”
The video ended as another male victim who identified himself as Emmanuel Soji was about to speak.
