A pregnant woman who was one of the abducted passengers in the Kaduna train attack of March 28, has been released by the terrorists.

A member of the Concerned Relatives of Abducted Persons, Sani Musa confirmed the development to Channels Television on Sunday.

The pregnant woman, Thamina Mahmood, was said to have been released in compassionate spirit on Saturday afternoon after she and 61 others had spent 45 days in captivity.

Shortly after her release, the freed lady was seen in a viral video, where she appealed to the Federal Government to negotiate with the terrorists.

According to her, the appeal has become necessary because of the uncertainty surrounding the plight of other kidnap victims who are still in the custody of the terrorists inside the forest.

But he said, “the only point of departure is that we have asked ASUU that strikes cannot cure the problem”.

His comment came on the heels of ASUU’s extension of the strike embarked on by the union since February 14. The lecturers are accusing the Federal Government of unwillingness to heed their demands.
