Reports on Monday night indicated that a train carrying over 900 passengers was bombed by suspected terrorists between Rijana and Katari in Kaduna State.
A passenger was reported to have managed to call his relation, saying all passengers were lying on the floor as the terrorists were shooting at the train, sporadically.
Efforts to get confirmation from the Kaduna police could not yield any result.
At the Rigasa Rail Station in Kaduna, the train was still being expected as at time of this report.
Meanwhile, some people expecting their relations travelling in the train were sighted busy making calls and looking worried.
One was later heard saying “Praise be to Allah. The soldiers and DSS have secured the train.
“Alhamdulillah! The army are with us. We are safe!”
One Ana Iro Danmusa, who said he was one of the passengers in the ill-fated train, narrated his experience on facebook:
