Monday evening.

SaharaReporters learnt that Wakkala was shot on the leg and currently hospitalized.

SaharaReporters on Monday night also reported that Muhammad Amin Mahmood, 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.

SaharaReporters learnt the politician was on board the train and was one of those shot during the train ride which was heading to Kaduna from Abuja.

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.

DELTA STATE

Gunmen kidnap former NUJ Chairman Osahon,
others, shoot driver in Delta.

Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have reportedly kidnapped a journalist, Comrade Osahon and others along the East-West road, by Ewreni community, in Ughelli North Local Government
Area of Delta State.

The gunmen also shot dead a driver working with Sunny Eru Motors, just as they kidnapped his eighteen passengers.

The incident occurred late Monday, March 28, when the journalists were returning from the Press Centre in Bayelsa State, DAILY POST learnt.

At the time of this report, the gunmen have called the wife of the journalist, demanding five million naira ransom.

A Warri-based lawyer, Mr. Lucky Egboyi Esq, who narrowly escaped from the scene, disclosed this to our correspondent in Warri.

The legal practitioner, who was returning from Bayelsa State where he went for a matter, said they ran into the Fulani herdsmen operating in the road.

He disclosed that the Fulani herdsmen shot the Sunny Eru driver in the head and kidnapped several passengers.

According to him, “it was a narrow escape for me and a few others because we had to run into the bush. The policemen who came ran away with their van.”

The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe in a telephone chat with our correspondent said, “I’m not aware. You’re the one telling me now.”

The Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ Warri Correspondents’ Chapel, Comrade Okies Veeky in a chat, said, “This news is saddening and appalling. That shows that there’s
no good security network in that area, nay the whole of Delta State.

“The DSS, the Army and the Police should all live up to expectations. They should try and help us. We are living in an unsecured society. The journalist is a former Chairman of the
NUJ Bayelsa State. His abduction is a condemnable act. This is very bad and the security agencies should wake up and do something.”

Comrade Veeky appealed to the kidnappers to release the journalist unhurt.

“I am using this opportunity to appeal to the kidnappers that he is a poor journalist. He has no money to pay. That man cannot afford five million naira. We are mere servants of
the people. So, they should temper justice with mercy and leave him unhurt,” he pleaded.
