Four of the children who were abducted on a Kaduna-bound train in March have been released.
The children were abducted alongside their parents and other passengers when terrorists bombed the rail track and gunned down some passengers.
Different captives were released over a period of four months.
In a statement on Wednesday, Tukur Mamur, Kaduna-based publisher who claimed that he negotiated the release of some of the passengers, said the children and their parents were released after the intervention of Sheik Ahmad Gumi.
Also released is a 60 year old woman, one Hajia Aisha Hassan who was said to have been released due to life threatening health challenges that deteriorated recently.
The names of the six family members that were released are Abubakar Idris Garba, who is the father of the four kids, his wife Maryama Abubakar Bobbo and their eldest son, Ibrahim Abubakar Garba who is 10 years old.
Others include Fatima Abubakar Garba 7 years, Imran Abubakar Garba 5 years old and youngest Zainab Abubakar Garba who is only one and half years.
The husband, Abubakar is the son of Maj Gen Idris Garba (rtd). Gen. Garba who is now bed ridden is an indigene of Niger State and a former Military Administrator of Kano and Benue States during the administration of former Head Of State, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida.
Garba had pleaded with government to ensure the release of his child, daughter- in-law and grandchildren.
