A corps member abducted by the Boko Haram, Mr. Abraham Amuda has said he is ready to live under the Boko Haram caliphate and continue his humanitarian work. Amuda, who was a Batch B National Youth Service Corps(NYSC) member undertaking his primary assignment with Borno Council for Arts and Culture, was abducted in 2019 along Maiduguri-Gwoza road while travelling to Chibok to deliver relief materials with a Living Faith Church Pastor, Moses Oyeleke, who was also abducted but subsequently released. They were believed to have been abducted by the Ibrahim Shekau’s faction of the terrorist group, Negotiation for the release of Abraham, a Benue-born Christian, has been on since the release of Pastor Oyeleke on November 11. But this seems to have been frustrated with Abraham’s latest found love in the strange religion of Boko Haram, which he now expressed his willingness to propagate. It was gathered that if Abraham had chosen to be freed, he should have reunited with his family and friends on Sunday, February 2. However, negotiators were surprised when he bluntly told them that he would work with the insurgents. Abraham had said in a new video that: “I have chosen not to go back to Nigeria. I have taken decision not to go back to Nigeria. I thank the Living Faith Church and everybody showing concern for my release. I am not a boy. I have been to school and I know the decision I have made.”
