One of the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers who regained freedom after more than four months in captivity, Sidi Aminu Sharif, has revealed that he was shot by the terrorists while in captivity.
He revealed this when he spoke at the office of Kaduna-based Publisher, Tukur Mamu, who facilitated their release.
Sharif was one of the five freed by the terrorists on Tuesday.
He said: “I am one of the passengers of the train 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 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.
“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.”
