Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, and other passengers narrowly escaped being kidnapped by hoodlums at Rigasa Train Station on Sunday evening,A Co-Convener of Bring Back Our Girls group, Aisha Yesufu conveyed the story.
Yesufu said on Twitter that her brother and her sister-in-law were on the train when the incident occurred.
An online medium, Daily Nigerian, had in a report stated that kidnappers laid in ambush around Mando area and attempted to waylay the passengers including Amaechi, who arrived at Rigasa train station around 8:15 pm on Sunday.
Amaechi, in a tweet, described the report as fake news and asked Nigerians to ignore it.
In her response, however, Yesufu described Amaechi as a liar, insisting that there were eyewitnesses.
“So Amaechi thought he had security and he was immune to the insecurity that affects the rest of us.
“Even the President is not secure. What he has is illusion of security. The more these attacks happen, the more likely we are going to be victims.”
