Terrorists who abducted the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers have threatened to abduct and kill both President Muhammadu Buhari and Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
The terrorists in a video also vowed to continue torturing the victims in their captivity.
In a two-minute and sixty seconds video, the terrorists were seen mercilessly weeping the victims with sticks and boasted that they would destroy the country, kill the remaining passengers in their custody and sell out the others.
One of the terrorists threatened that they would turn the area into an abattoir unless the government complied with their demands.
“This is our message to the government of Nigeria and just as you have seen these people here, by God’s grace, you will see your leaders; your senators and governors will come before us,” one of the terrorists said in Hausa language.
“These ones you are seeing here, we will keep some as our slaves and sell them off just as our Imam told you in the past.
“Just like the Chibok girls that were sold off, we will equally sell these ones as slaves. If you don’t adhere to our demands, we will kill the ones we need to kill and sell the remaining. By God’s grace, El-Rufai, Buhari, we will bring you here.”
One of the victims, who did not mention his name, called on the international communities to come to their rescue and accused the Federal Government of negligence.
“These people (Terrorists) were ready to release us even a week after the incident, but Government refused to meet their demands. we are calling on France, England, and other international communities like UN, and AU to come to our rescue,” the captive said.
