The Egyptian Police have arrested the lead negotiator between the terrorists and passengers kidnapped from the attacked Abuja-Kaduna train, Alhaji Tukur Mamu.

Mamu was reportedly awaiting a connecting flight to Saudi Arabia at the Cairo International Airport when he was arrested and detained for reasons yet unknown.

Mamu was said to be on his way to Saudi Arabia for the lesser Hajj when he was detained at the Cairo International Airport.

The terrorists’ negotiator was said to have been arrested in Egypt alongside his family members.

Meanwhile, there are also reports that Mamu has been flown back to Nigeria following his arrest by Interpol.

Gentechnews had reported how some bloodthirsty terrorists attacked the Abuja-Kaduna bound AK9 train on March 28, and abducted some passengers.

The terrorists planted explosive devices along the rail track and when the train approached the point, the device exploded, causing the train to derail, leading to the death of eight passengers.

Some of the passengers were reportedly released after payment of ransom, while others are still being held in the kidnappers’ den.
