Bombed Kaduna-Abuja train

The military authorities have handed over luggages, valuables and other belongings of passengers who were on board the ill-fated Abuja-Kaduna train AK9, which was attacked by bandits on March 28.

This was contained in a press release issued Friday in Kaduna by Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan.

Mr Aruwan said soldiers had gathered the items from within and around the train during search operations after the attack.

The commissioner said the items comprised of over 100 pieces of luggage, valuables, gadgets and personal effects.

He said that nine persons had already collected their items after presenting proof of ownership, adding that the remaining belongings, received with a detailed inventory, would be carefully stored.

“A system for the receipt of claims will be communicated to the public subsequently,” Mr Aruwan said.
