One of the pregnant women abducted from a train in Kaduna on March 28, 2022, has given birth.
A family member of the victim disclosed this in an interview with ARISE TV.
According to the television station, the relation said a doctor was sneaked into the camp to attend to the woman.
Sources said the terrorists are organised and coordinated because of the way they were able to get medical supplies into the forest, a development they described as still shocking to both government and security operatives.
“The woman who was reportedly eight months pregnant at the time of the attack, gave birth safely after the terrorists were said to have invited the medical personnel to attend to her. The state of health of the baby is however unknown.”
“According to reports by family sources, she gave birth with the aid of doctors brought in by the terrorists. We can also report that the terrorists are demanding the release of their top commanders in exchange for the abducted train passengers,” ARISE said in its report.
The families of the kidnapped have appealed to the government to secure their release, but the terrorists have demanded to swap them with their commanders who are currently in detention.
Earlier in the week, the terrorists released pictures of the victims in captivity.
Among those seen were a couple with their four kids, two elderly women and 17 men.
At least nine persons were killed after the terrorists bombed the rail track and opened fire on the passengers.
