Chinelo Megafu, an overseas-bound medical practitioner, and several other passengers on board were killed in the incident.
Chinelo was said to have died from gunshot wounds sustained during the late Monday terror attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train.
She had tweeted during the attack that she had been shot and asked for prayers.
Additionally, relatives of passengers on the Kaduna-bound train attacked by terrorists have voiced concern over their loved ones’ safety.
my country keeps showing us new levels of how much it has failed us, “you think we failed you enough yesterday? we’d fail you a lot more today”. Nobody’s safe except the govt people in their bulletproof trucks bought with money they stole from us. Whew
RIP Chinelo 🕊

They said they had failed to make communication 14 hours after the sad occurrence at the Rigasa Railway station in Kaduna today.
They pleaded with the authorities to assist them in avoiding the trauma of losing loved ones.
Chinelo had just 4 days to leave Nigeria and be saved.
But Nigeria ate her young and drank her blood.

Meanwhile, Terrorists have yet again attacked Gidan train Station along the Abuja-Kaduna rail track.
Terrorists may have planted IEDs on the tracks, bringing the train from Kaduna to Abuja to a halt, according to sources.
This is the second attack along the same axis in less than 24 hours.
However, train service between Abuja and Kaduna has been temporarily halted by the Nigerian Railway Corporation.
Nigeria can happen to you anywhere, any time and any day. Dr Chinelo will never be forgotten and the responses she got from Abolore, Woye, Iyabo and their cohorts will also not be forgotten. pic.twitter.com/Ll5NVyQYpg

Fake intelligence….no intel on Kaduna- Abuja Train bombing.

Kaduna-Abuja by road no good.
Abuja-Kaduna by train no good.
Zamfara to Kano road no good.
Zamfara to Katsina road no good.
Sokoto/Kebbi to Zamfara no good.
Your safety defends on ur Azkar.
May Allah keep protecting us.🙏
