Terrorists have released a video of 63 women, including a bride, her relatives and maids that they abducted in Sabuwa local government area of Katsina state last week with a threat to remarry the bride if a ransom was not quickly paid for their release.
The women were members of a wedding procession abducted by the terrorists last Thursday evening around Gamji in Damari while escorting the bride to her matrimonial home.
It was not immediately clear when the video was taken but it surfaced on social media on Tuesday with guns slung across the shoulders of three or more of the victims, including a young girl clad in a navy blue Hijab.
Some of the victims are children.
One of the terrorists was in a police uniform while another one donned military camouflage.
“Let’s see if there is anyone who can rescue them without paying ransom,” one of the terrorists in the background said in Hausa. “They are here, you can see them. You people should stop lying that they are 50, we have 63 of them with us including their driver. Look at the bride.”
The camera pans left then right revealing most of the captives and four of the terrorists.
