A female victim, who was eight months pregnant when she was abducted on the ill-fated Abuja-Kaduna train, was believed to have given birth in the terrorists’ enclave.
According to sources, she was one of two pregnant ladies among the kidnapped train passengers.
She gave birth over the weekend, according to reports.
“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 a medical personnel to attend to her.
” The state of health of the baby is, however, unknown. She gave birth with the aid of doctors brought in by the terrorists,” the source said.
Meanwhile, spokesman of the families of the victims, Dr. Abdulfatai Jimoh, has said the federal government was yet to reach out to the families, adding that they were currently in the dark about the whole development.
He said it was now 30 days after the victims were kidnapped and taken away, after the train attack by terrorists,an incident that has continued to traumatize them.
“We are in the dark and worried over the development, especially as the terrorists prefer to negotiate with the government.
”The situation is still the same. There is no communication from them. The last time they called like I said was our relations that we spoke to. We have not spoken with them at all.
“From what they said, it was the government they want to talk to, so that’s why they have not called us. But assuming there is an option, we would have explored the option.
Dr Jimoh asked the terrorists to reach out to the families, if there was an option for negotiation of release of their loved ones.
