Kaduna train attack: “May this kind of affliction never ever befall you” – Freed passenger Mariama Abubakar Bobbo, writes
Mariama Abubakar Bobbo, who was kidnapped alongside her husband, Abubakar Idris Garba and their four children during the Kaduna-Abuja train attack, has taken to her social media page to share her experience in captivity for the past 4 months.
Her husband is a staff of the National Assembly Commission and son of former military governor of Kano and Benue States.
Taking to her Facebook page on Monday, August 15, Mariama was grateful to friends and family members for their prayers, donations and support towards their release from captivity.
Her post reads;
“Allah tests those whom He loves most. Which of His favors shall I deny?,” .
None!!! He said : I will not give you a burden you cannot bear. After every difficulty there is ease. True He was merciful, He gave us courage to persevere and bear with the situation.
We were always full of gratitude and we put our absolute trust in Him alone for we were sure it was our destiny written by no one but Him and it shall pass at His appointed time.
However, may this kind of affliction never ever befall us and anyone of you all. May Allah protect us all. May Allah reward you all abundantly and replenish you all in folds.
Thank you all for supporting us and standing beside my sister (mother) Rabi Abubakar Bobbo these 4 and half months while we were in captivity.
Let’s continue to pray for the rest in captivity please. We pray collectively at 2:30-3:00am and I try to still be awake to do same. Do join us.
Hasbunallah wa ni’imal wakil 1000 each and La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay in qadir 1000 each.
For other faiths any prayers to please God and ask that He manifests their safe home coming is equally fine please. Thank you. Thank you.”
