Abducted pregnant passenger in train attack gives birth in captivity
Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
A pregnant woman, abducted from a train in Kaduna on March 28, 2022, has given birth in captivity.
A family member of the victim disclosed this in an interview on a television program.
The relation said a doctor was sneaked into the camp to attend to the woman.
The terrorists are understood to be 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 but the state of health of the baby is unknown.
She is believed to have given birth with the aid of doctors brought in by the terrorists.
However, the terrorists are demanding the release of their top commanders in exchange for the abducted train passengers.
The families of the kidnapped have appealed to the government to secure their release, but the terrorists have insisted on swap 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.
