The terrorists who abducted passengers when they attacked a Kaduna-bound train from Abuja on March 28, have released a photograph of a new-born baby girl delivered by one of the abducted women who was reportedly eight months pregnant at the time of the abduction.
The terror group which carried out the attack, suspected to be members of the Ansaru sect, a breakaway group from Boko Haram, released the picture of the new baby on social media on Thursday, day after they released photographs of some of the kidnapped victims in their den.
After the release of the abductees’ photographs, there were stories of the pregnant woman giving birth to a baby in the terrorists’ camp by her family who said they were called by the criminals to inform them of the news.

A family member of the woman had first hinted that she had been delivered of her baby, although the identity of the new-born child was not disclosed until the terrorists released her picture.
To confirm the news they gave to the family, the terrorists released the photograph of the infant baby girl and informed the family she was in good condition and was being taken care of by qualified nurses.
“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 the medical personnel to attend to her. The state of health of the baby is however unknown.
“According to reports by family sources, she gave birth with the aid of doctors brought in by the terrorists. We can also report that the terrorists are demanding the release of their top commanders in exchange for the abducted train passengers.”
The families of the abducted vicitms have appealed to the government to secure their release.
Earlier in the week, the terrorists released pictures of the victims in captivity.
Among those seen were a couple with their four kids, two elderly women and 17 men.
At least nine persons were killed after the terrorists bombed the rail track and opened fire on the passengers.
