The Abuja-Kaduna train attackers who kidnapped scores of passengers some months back are said to have played a smart trick on the Buhari-led administration. As part of the bargain to release the kidnapped train passengers, it was negotiated that the wives and children of some of the terrorists who were in government custody be released to the Terrorists. As sad as that may sound, the federal government had no choice, considering the pressures from the families of the abductees as well as concerned Nigerians.

According to a reliable source from presidency, the Federal government has fulfilled it’s part of the bargain by releasing some captured Terrorists, wives and children, including one of the leaders’ wife who recently had twins in government custody. They were flown as VIPs from Adamawa to Kaduna to the waiting hands of the Terrorists!

After receiving their freed family members, the Terrorists have refused to release the remaining 31 captives in their den. They insist yet on ransom!
