Earlier today, Senator Shehu Sani had broken the news that bandits attacked the Kaduna-Abuja train, planted explosives that damaged the train track and opened fire on the driver.
The Senator disclosed that the incident occurred between Dutse and Rijana stations.
Meanwhile, The Nigeria Railway Corporation has stopped services on the Abuja-Kaduna route after confirming that the train tracks were destroyed.
NRC in a statement shared on its website stated that it has suspended operation on the Abuja-Kaduna route for the safety of passengers and crew members.
The corporation said efforts are being put in place to ensure absolute safety along the route and further information concerning the suspension will be conveyed to the public shortly.
Abuja/Kaduna Train Service Station Manager, Paschal Nnorli has however told Punch that there was an attack on the train, but could not tell if it was with an explosive.
He was quoted saying “Yes, there was an attack, but right now I cannot confirm if it was an explosive or bomb attack as people are saying.
“Investigations are ongoing and I’ll give you updates as they come in. Our engineers have been mobilised to the area. And right now we have suspended services.”
