An audio attributed to Japanese hostage Kenji Goto Jogo stated that the Jordanians must present Sajida al-Rishawi at the Turkish border by Thursday sunset, or Jordanian pilot Mu’adh al-Kasasibah will be executed “immediately”.

IS-linked Twitter accounts distributed the video, which contains the audio and Arabic text, on January 28, 2015. Jogo said:

“I’m Kenji Goto Jogo. This is a voice message I’ve been told to send to you. If Sajida al-Rishawi is not ready for exchange for my life at the Turkish border by Thursday sunset, 29th of January, Mosul time, the Jordanian pilot Mu’adh al-Kasasibah will be killed immediately.”
