One Week After Kaduna Train Attack, 168 Passengers Still Unaccounted For – NRC

One week after terrorists attacked a train in Kaduna State, over 100 of the passengers have yet to be accounted for, an official has said.

Premium Times reported last Monday’s attack on the Kaduna-bound train by terrorists who first used explosives to immobilise the train before shooting at some of the passengers. They killed some and kidnapped many other passengers.

The Nigerian Railway Corporation has said its manifest showed that there were 362 passengers on board the train. Many Nigerians, however, believe the figures are much higher due to the fraud and manipulations that go on at the train stations.

The NRC, on Sunday, provided more updates on its activities since the train attack.

The agency said it has confirmed the safety of 14 more passengers on board the train, bringing the total number of safe passengers to 186.

Of the remaining 176 passengers, eight have been confirmed dead, while the families of 22 passengers have formally declared them missing. This indicates that a total of 168 passengers have yet to be accounted for including the 22 declared missing by their families.

It is not yet clear if all the 168 were kidnapped by the attackers or have just not been accounted for one week after the incident.
