Call it fate, luck or miracle, but
Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Alfred Achebe, narrowly escaped being kidnapped in the March 28 train attack in Kaduna State.
The Onitsha monarch recently narrated how a phone call saved him from boarding the ill-fated Abuja-Kaduna train that was attacked by bandits.
Speaking when Igbo leaders under the aegis of Ahamefuna Socio-cultural organisation converged in Enugu, Igwe Achebe said he did not board the train because of a phone call inviting him for an emergency.
He said, “I was among the passengers meant to be on the train last Monday because I had a meeting I was supposed to be attending. I was already at the train station when I got a call over an emergency and I had to leave the station to attend to it”.
The monarch decried the increasing insecurity situation in the country.
