Family members of the victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train attack have raised concern over threats by the terrorists to kill the victims if the Federal Government fails to yield to their demands after seven days.
In a press briefing on Wednesday, the devastated relatives of the abductees said the terrorists have spoken to them directly, and are demanding the release of their eight children being held by the Federal Government in Adamawa State before they release the 61 abducted train passengers.
The Spokesperson for the group, Matilda Ajayi conceded that the families had been hopeful for the safe return of their children but the threat to life has left them broken-hearted.
She urged President Buhari not to abandon their cause but to give heed to their demands in securing the release of their family members.
