Gunmen Attacked Kaduna-Abuja Train Multiple Times On Monday


Reports circulating at the moment say that gunmen shot at an Abuja Bound Train which took off from Kaduna on Monday.

Reports are sketchy at the moment as relevant government authorities are yet to release a statement on the attack of the train which left for Abuja on Monday evening.

However, some sources from the government have claimed the attacks on the train were launched by stone-throwers.

The Police Command in Kaduna State has continued to deny rumours that a Kaduna bound train was attacked by gunmen on Monday evening.

The Command Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview that the train which left Abuja for Kaduna arrived safely.

He, however, said that some miscreants threw stones at the moving train around Rijana village, close to Kaduna.

“It was not a bullet or bow and arrow, what they threw are not aggressive weapons. It was not an attack, the train was moving. Our men in Rijana are on top of the situation,” he added.

The command spokesman assured that a thorough investigation would be conducted and anyone found to be involved in the incident would be punished.

“So far no suspect has been arrested but our men have been deployed in the area to trail the suspects,” Jalige said.
