  • Shehu Sani said the animals were moving around freely at the station while grasses have grown around the environment too

The lawmaker who represented Kaduna central senatorial district in the Eighth Senate, Shehu Sani, has said that nature has taken over the train station on the Abuja-Kaduna railway track months after the area was abandoned due to terrorists' attack.

In a tweet posted on Sunday, September 25, the former lawmaker said that he visited one of the stations and realised that since the trains stopped functioning after Monday, March 28, attack by terrorists, grasses have started growing there.

The terrorists stopped the trains after the attack. I visited one of the deserted stations.I saw grasses growing in places that was once bustling with people.
"I saw cats, birds and lizards moving freely."

Morale lesson for all

Speaking on the lessons learnt from his experience at the abandoned train station, Sani said that once human activity is gone from a location, nature tends to reclaim the environment.

His word:

"The lesson is that, once people are gone, nature will reclaim its wilderness."

Kaduna terrorists' negotiator: DSS issues strong statement over Tukur Mamu's detention, gives key reasons

The State Security Service had said that the outcome of the investigation into some of the activities of Tukur Mamu, the publisher negotiating the release of abducted Kaduna train victims is mind-boggling.

The secret police in a statement also urged the public to desist from making comments regarding the arrest and detention of Mamu.

According to the SSS, the service will not be distracted from doing its job which is the ultimate protection of the people.

Sheikh Gumi's man who negotiated Kaduna train hostage release arrested in Cairo on FG's order previously reported that Mamu was arrested in Cairo, the capital of Egypt on Wednesday, September 7.

He was arrested with his family on their way to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj and was detained for 24 hours at the Cairo International Airport.

Mamu, who had been reported as the spokesperson of the popular Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmed Gumi, is being repatriated back to Nigeria.
