Few weeks after the convoy of President Muhammadu Buhari was attacked in Katsina State, terrorists have threatened to abduct Nigeria’s number one citizen.
The convoy of an advance team of the president was attacked on its way to Buhari’s hometown of Daura ahead of Sallah.
Two persons sustained injuries in the attack, which the presidency said was repelled.
The attack on the convoy happened on the day when the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) invaded Kuje Prison in Abuja and freed over 800 inmates, including all the terrorists in detention.
Daily Trust had reported how the train abductors jubilated when the Kuje inmates were released.
According to Daily Trust report, the terrorists who abducted over 60 passengers of the Abuja Kaduna train on March 28, threatened to abduct and kill Buhari and Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai.
The terrorists also boasted that they would destroy the country, kill the remaining passengers in their custody and sell out the others.
Some passengers were released after reportedly paying N100 million each.
One of the terrorists threatened that unless the government comply with their demands, they would turn the area into an abattoir.
“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. 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,” he said.
He further stated in Hausa: “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.”
