ISWAP LEADER SET TO MARRY ABUJA-KADUNA TRAIN ATTACK VICTIM
One of the leaders of the ISWAP terrorists that attacked the Abuja-Kaduna train on March 28 is planning to marry 21-year-old Azurfa Lois John, one of the youngest victims of the attack.
A member of the negotiating team, Tukur Mamu confirmed the development on Friday.
Mamu said the marriage could take place any moment from now.
He, however, called on the federal government and the Christian Association of Nigeria to act fast in securing the release of all the victims.
Mamu also confirmed that the oldest victim of the attack, an 85-year-old Hajiya Halimatu Atta, and her 53-year-old daughter, Adama Aliyu have been released.
The duo were part of the four more hostages released by the terrorists on Friday.
However, Mamu noted that the health condition of the 23 remaining victims is pathetic and requires urgent medical attention.
He also called on CAN not to politicize the issue or reduce it to mere press releases. Mamu urged the religious body to work closely with relevant authorities to engage the abductors on the case of Ms. John before it is late.
