TUC Secretary-General, Kwara TUC Chairman Among Dead Victims Of Kaduna Bound Train Attack

by Anita Ogona

Members of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) were among those killed in Monday’s attack on a Kaduna bound train.

It was gathered that the Secretary-General of the union, Barr. Musa-Lawal Ozigi, and TUC Chairman in Kwara, Comrade Akinsola Akinwunmi were killed during the attack.

Reacting to the incident, some members of the union expressed sorrow over the development. “We lost our Sec. Gen. (Secretary-General) and the Kwara State Chairman,” a source in the TUC confided on telephone.

Terrorists had bombed a section of the Kaduna-Abuja rail track, forcing the train, which departed Abuja at 6pm on Monday to derail.

After that, they opened fire on passengers, abducting some and killing others.

In the latest update on the rescue operation, the Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said while eight corpses had been recovered, 26 people who were injured were receiving treatment.

an aspirant in the just-concluded National Convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Northwest Zonal Youth Leadership, was shot during the attack on Monday.

 

However, as of the time of filing this report, it was not clear how critical his injuries were or if he would survive.

 

SaharaReporters had reported that two cleaners and workers of the attacked Abuja-Kaduna train identified as Loretta and Abdul were confirmed dead.

 

There were at least 970 passengers on board the train, according to sources familiar with the train service.
