Bandits Release Video Of Bank Of Agric MD When He Was In Their Captivity
Boko Haram terrorists have released a video of the Managing Director of the Bank of Agriculture (BoA), Alwan Ali-Hassan, while in their custody.
Ali-Hassan was abducted during the attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train on March 28. On Wednesday, he was released to members of his family.
In the video shared after his release, the terrorists said they released by the BoA boss because he is old and also because this is the Ramadan season. The terrorists said the government knows what they want and should do their bidding otherwise they would turn their kidnap camp into an abbatoir. Over 140 passengers on the train are yet to be accounted for.
Read the translation of their communication below,
“We are the ones who abducted these people at the train. We decided to release this man becouse of the honour of the month of Ramadan and he is old. He has been pleading since we abducted him. The government should know that the train attack is just a little of what we can do. We would let this captive about to be released to speak, if he has something to say.”
Ali-Hassan was allowed to speak and he said,
“I was allowed to go because of my age. But I have left several abductees behind. The FG need to look for the leaders of this group to negotiate the release of the other captives. Their situation is bad and the are I dare need of assistance.”
The terrorists then spoke saying, “We don’t need your money.. you need to come and speak with us quickly, or we would turn their camp into an abattoir. Killing them is nothing to us.”
