Kidnapped Ex-NYSC Member Joins Boko Haram

 

Ex-National Youth Service Corps Member Abraham Amuta, who was reportedly kidnapped by the Boko Haram terrorists has agreed to join the terror group as a member.  

According to the Daily Trust, Abraham reportedly turned down negotiators who went to Sambisa to make offers to free him from the captivity of the Boko Haram group.

The report announced that he has denounced his Christian faith and chooses to remain in Sambisa as a member of the terrorist group.

Amuta was observing the one-year mandatory service in Borno State when he was abducted on 10 April 2019 on Gwoza-Maiduguri road. He was heading to Chibok to deliver humanitarian assistance.

He was traveling alongside a 58-year-old man, Moses Oyeleke of Living Faith Church in Maiduguri and few others, including a schoolgirl, Ndagiliya Ibrahim Umar.

Pastor Oyeleke was released in November 2019. According to the newspaper, negotiation for the release of Amuta and the other captives continued until yesterday when the process collapsed at the last hour following the ex-corps member’s decision to remain with his captors.
