EKO HOT BLOG reports that one of the victims of the Kaduna train attack of March 28, Sergeant Muhammad Funtua, has died due to injuries he sustained during the incident.
The retired soldier died on Tuesday in his hometown, Funtua in Katsina State, more than one week after the attack.
The victim, who was among those rescued by soldiers at the scene of the train attack at Dutse forest in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, died from multiple injuries he sustained from gunshots from the bandits.
A relation of the deceased said that the bandits shot the victim in the head and chest before the arrival of soldiers who stopped them from taking him away.
It would be recalled that about eight passengers were killed by the terrorists during the Kaduna train attack while others sustained varying degrees of injuries from gunshots.
The attackers also took some of the victims to an unknown destination. On Wednesday, they, however, released the Managing Director, Bank of Agriculture, Alwan Ali-Hassan, after his family reportedly paid a ransom.
