“I am one of the passengers of the train that was attacked in Kaduna on its way from Abuja. I could remember how it happened when the train was conveying us to Kaduna. As we were sitting on the train, I could remember I was praying when we heard a loud sound… I was shot on my stomach in captivity. A doctor tried to remove it, but he could not. He used my clothes to manage the blood which flowed to my knees.

“He used gloves and searched my stomach to pull out the bullet but couldn’t find it. He later used scissors but still couldn’t find any bullet in my stomach. Up till now, we didn’t see the bullet. I don’t know if it’s still in my stomach, I hope now that we are free, I can go to the hospital for x-ray if the bullet can be found,” he said.

It is unclear whether ransom was paid or not before the release of the victims, as at the time of filing this report, as they kept silence over the issue.
