Freed Abuja-Kaduna Train Passenger Recounts Ordeal in hands of Terrorists, Says She Was Lured With Marriage Proposals

Azurfa Lois John, one of the passengers who was abducted from Kaduna-bound train, has narrated her 191 days ordeal in the terrorists camp.

According to the 21-year-old Kaduna State University student who debuted among the remaining 23 passengers freed last week, one of the terrorists commanders had professed his love for Azurfa and wanted to marry her.

Narrating her ordeal to journalists from her hospital bed in Kaduna, Azurfa said she has forgiven the terrorists.

She said the terrorists stormed the train in a commando-like-style, shooting indiscriminately, ordering everyone to go out.

According to her, they walked a distance that night before motorcycles came, took them away and they journeyed for four days before arriving at the main camp that became their abode for six months.

“From the scene of the attack, I saw that the train just derailed, the terrorists entered the train, they started shooting sporadically and they asked us to go out. Then, the men were tied up, they collected our phones,” she narrated.

“We walked a distance that night before bikes came. Then, they took us to where we spent that night. We journeyed for four days before we got to where they dropped us, that is their main camp. We were there doing nothing, everyday was just like repetition of the previous day.”

Asked on how they were fed and treated by their captors, Arzurfa said, “We cook in the morning and in the evening, so we eat twice a day.”

She confirmed that the terrorists actually bring in medical doctors into the camp to treat sick abductees.

“Anytime we are sick, they bring drugs. The terrorists have medical doctors who come around to give medical care,” she said
