Alhaji Ibrahim Wakkala, the former Deputy Governor of Zamfara State, was among those killed in the terrorist attack on the Kaduna-bound train on Monday, March 28, 2022.
Wakkala was wounded in the leg, according to Daily Trust, and is currently being treated in a medical facility in Kaduna.
Yusuf Idris, a former media aide to the ex-deputy governor, told the newspaper that there is no cause for concern because Wakkala responds to treatment.
He said, “He is responding to treatment very well. He is answering phone calls in his bed. I spoke to him and several other people spoke to him also. There is no cause for alarm.”
Other people who were stuck in the train as a result of the attack have also been removed.
According to a statement issued by the Kaduna state government on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, the passengers were evacuated from several difficult-to-reach regions in the forest, and the casualties who incurred injuries were sent to hospitals.
In addition, the state government has committed to cover the costs of passengers who were hurt in the incident.
