The terrorists who attacked the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers on March 28, 2022, have released another seven hostages, including a family of six and an older woman.
Gumi had reached out to the abductors through his media consultant, Malam Tukur Mamu, appealing to them to release the children from captivity.
He was said to have sent sermons and consistently pleaded with the terrorists to consider the release of the poor children and their innocent parents.
It was learnt that the health condition of two of the children deteriorated since the flogging incident, which also affected their father.
Consequently, Mamu said another batch of additional seven kidnap victims among train passengers were released on Wednesday morning after Gumi and an anonymous federal lawmaker intervened.
A statement signed by Mamu on Wednesday afternoon, announced the release of the family of six and one other passenger.
