Terrorists have released the picture of a newborn baby girl delivered by a mother abducted during the March 28 attack on an Abuja-Kaduna-bound train.
This came barely three days after the assailants released the pictures of the kidnapped victims in captivity.
Since the abduction of the train passengers, the terrorists have released videos and pictures showing the abductees in captivity.
While the kidnapped victims and their families have called on the Federal Government to ensure the freedom of the abductees, the gunmen threatened to kill the abducted train passengers if the government did not meet their demands.
It was gathered that the assailants insisted that they were not after a ransom, but an exchange of the abducted passengers with their commanders who are allegedly in government custody.
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, had at a recent media briefing discloses that the Federal Government was working behind the scene to secure the release of all the hostages currently languishing in captivity.
Sundry media reports two days ago had indicated the birth of the new baby by the abductee in the terrorists’ den.
A family member of the woman, who made the disclosure, had said the identity of the newborn child was not disclosed.
However, the terrorist group suspected to be Ansaru, a breakaway group from Boko Haram, released the picture of the new baby on Wednesday night.
Credible sources disclosed that the terrorists invited a doctor to take the delivery of the infant, who was clad in a thick pink dress and a light lemon sweater cap, with her eyes closed in the released picture.
Meanwhile, the state of the other pregnant woman abducted by the gunmen remained unknown as of the time of publication of this report.
