Insecurity: Terrorists Bomb Abuja-Kaduna Rail Track

It has been reported that gunmen allegedly attacked the Abuja-Kaduna rail line on Monday evening, and opened fire on the train which had about 900 plus passengers on board.

According to reports, some passengers at the Idu Train Station in Abuja disclosed that the attack occurred between Katari and Rijana in Kaduna State.

Although there were reports that men of the Nigerian Army intervened and prevented the attackers from taking away the passengers, the details of the attack were still sketchy at the time of filing the report.

However, an official of the Nigerian Railway Corporation reportedly confirmed the incident, stating, “We don’t have many details now and passengers cannot give the exact information because most of them went into hiding.”

The official disclosed, “It was a continuous gunshot and this made the train to stop. There are also reports of explosives detonated on the train line, but this information has to be verified.”
