The latest attack launched on the train is a new dimension in their dastardly operations.

The terrorists, who have seized the Abuja-Kaduna road for the past few years, may have resorted to attacking the train which most used commuters have been using as an alternative to the road.

Breaking the news of the attack, Senator Shehu Sani said there was a double attack on the Abuja train.

Sani had tweeted: “Yesternight (Wednesday), Bandits attacked the Kaduna-Abuja train.

“They planted an explosive that damaged the rail track and shattered the windshield of the train engine.They also opened fire, targeting the Driver and the Tank.

 

 

“It happened between Dutse and Rijana stations.The Driver struggled to move towards Kaduna Rigasa station.

“This early morning, I was on board when our train ran over another explosive damaged railings.The train nearly skid off its track, then we miraculously escaped.

“All Kaduna Abuja train operations need to be suspended for today until this issue is addressed.”

He said the the Abuja-Kaduna rail track was bombed by Kaduna terrorists, adding that the train almost derailed.
