Rotimi Amaechi, Transportation Minister, has reacted to reports that he escaped from kidnappers on Sunday.
An online news medium, Daily Nigerian, had exclusively reported that the former Rivers State governor alongside other passengers heading to Kaduna by train escaped being abducted.
The attack said to have occurred at Rigasa train station around 8:15pm, was unsuccessful due to the timely intervention of police and military personnel.
But the minister while reacting described the report fake news saying it was entirely concocted.
He refused to release further details on whether he boarded the train or not.
“Fake News. This is completely concocted,” Amaechi tweeted on Sunday.
