Barely 24 hours after the bloody attack on a Kaduna bound train from Abuja on Monday night, Managing Director of the Bank of Agriculture (BoA), Alwan Ali Hassan, has been reported to be one of the missing passengers in the train attacked by terrorists between Katari and Rijana.
Emerging reports suggests that he may be among one of the victims whisked away by the terrorists with cars they brought to the crime scene.
A source told The Nation on Tuesday that Hassan’s line has been switched off since the time of the attack on Monday evening with no one able to reach him.
The source added that Alwan 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 close to his family said.
The report comes as more details of the attack emerge and the victims are being identified.
