One of the kidnapped victims in the Abuja- Kaduna train that was bombed and shot at by terrorists and Managing Director of the Bank of Agriculture, Alwan Ali Hassan, may have been released, unconfirmed reports in Abuja say.
It is not exactly known the circumstances of his release, but a source said he is on his way home.
The source said a ransom was paid for Alwan to be released by the terrorists.
168 persons remain unaccounted for after the historic attack on the Kaduna bound train last week Monday.
The Nigeria Railway Corporation is as confused as many other Nigerians as to the whereabout of the 168, whether they were kidnapped for ransom or they went home without reporting to government.
So far, eight people have been officially confirmed as killed, while 26 were injured, though unofficial sources say the number is far higher.
Among the dead were two officials of the Trade Union Congress (TUC).
They were the Secretary-General, Barr. Musa-Lawal Ozigi, and TUC Chairman in Kwara, Comrade Akinsola Akinwunmi.
