A National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Abraham Amuta, who was abducted by Boko Haram insurgents in April 2019, has reportedly rejected an offer to be freed from the terrorists group.

Daily Trust reports that Amuta, now an ex-corp member, told negotiators who went to the Sambisa Forest to secure his freedom to go back home, saying he had renounced his Christian faith and he is staying back with Boko Haram.

The negotiation for the release of Amuta and the other captives was continued until on Sunday, February 2, 2020, when the process collapsed at the last hour, following the ex-corps member’s decision to remain with the terrorist group.

Amuta, a native of Benue State, who was doing his one-year mandatory service in Borno State, was abducted alongside a 58-year-old man, Moses Oyeleke of Living Faith Church in Maiduguri and few others, including a schoolgirl, Ndagiliya Ibrahim Umar, on April 10, 2019.

They were abducted along Gwoza road from Maiduguri on their way to Chibok to deliver humanitarian assistance.

Seven months after there abduction by the Boko Haram insurgents, Pastor Moses Oyeleke was released in November 2019.
