 The son of the Chairman of Northern Elders Forum(NEF), Sadiq  Ango Abdullahi who was released by terrorists on Friday, is currently undergoing psychological rehabilitation in a private hospital in Kaduna, a family member of the abducted train passengers has disclosed.

‘You see, that’s why we are very careful now. Negotiations between the government and the terrorists for the release of our loved ones have reached an advanced stage.”

‘ We don’t want to jeopardize the process now. So, if you identify any person on the released photos, please we are advising people to keep mute.”

‘ We are sure the terrorists later find out who Sadiq was and later decided to negotiate for his freedom.”
