However,Nigerians were not having it as they reacted to his denial.
Aisha Yesufu said “Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi you should be ashamed of yourself. My sister, my brother and my sister-in-law were in that train. When your convoy scattered and you fled like a new born mouse whom water have been poured on, it was witnessed!. GOVERNANCE IS NOT BY LIES & PROPAGANDA!”
Others reacted thus:
It was reported that hundreds of Abuja-Kaduna train passengers, including the minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, escaped attack by kidnappers on Sunday evening.
It was reliably gathered that the kidnappers laid in ambush around Mando area and attempted to waylay the passengers, who arrived at Rigasa train station around 8:15pm.
Sources said no sooner the kidnappers opened fire on the vehicles than mobile policemen and soldiers arrived the scene in armoured vehicles to disperse the hoodlums.
“We were lucky the police and soldiers are nearby to come our rescue. The minister of Transport Rotimi Amaechi was among the passengers. His convoy had to make a detour onto Rigasa road,” said a passenger, Musa Lawan.
When contacted, spokesman for Kaduna Police Command, Mohammed Jalige, said he would make findings and revert.
