According to Tukur Mamu, the publisher who has been negotiating with the terrorists, the victim identified as Mohammed Al’amin is currently in a critical condition.

Mamu, who facilitated the release of 11 of the passengers, confirmed the development to Daily Trust correspondent.
“I can confirm to you that the said passenger has been shot and the information is credible. It could also be intentional from them for the purpose of sending a message. Killing of their victims is something we know they can do. They have threatened to do that before,” he said.
He said the government must be prepared to take full responsibility if they fail to act on time.
Mamu said there has been constant communication but government is yet to take action.
“I know what is in this crisis and that is why I keep emphasising that President Buhari must be prepared to take painful compromises if they are really committed to securing these innocent victims alive,” he said.
