Train Attack: Bank of Agriculture MD, Hassan Kidnapped


The Managing Director of the Bank of Agriculture (BOA), Alwan Hassan, was reportedly among the victims kidnapped by terrorists during the Monday attack on Kaduna bound train.

A source close to the BOA boss family, on Tuesday, said Hassan’s line has been switched off since after the attack on Monday evening with no one able to reach him.

The source noted that Hassan boarded the evening train going to Kaduna with one of his nieces.

“We cannot tell if he has been kidnapped or not but we are worried because we have been unable to reach him since yesterday.

“His phone lines have been switched off and no one has contacted the bank or any of his family members,” the source disclosed.

It was reported that the terrorists blew up the rail tracks then open fire on the train, injuring many before making their way to the VIP Coach where many passengers were abducted.
