Senator Shehu Sani, Others Narrowly Escape Death In Abuja-Kaduna Train Attack

Bandits attacked an Abuja–Kaduna train on Wednesday night, blowing up explosives on the rail track and inflicting unusual panic in the Kaduna metropolis.

Shehu Sani, the former senator representing Kaduna Central, was among the people traveling from Kaduna to Abuja, but he barely escaped death when the train galloped into a rail track destroyed by the blast.

Senator Shehu stated: “Bandits attacked a Kaduna to Abuja train on Wednesday. They planted a bomb that destroyed the railway track and broke the wind-guard of the train. The bandits were shooting sporadically at the train targeting the tank and the driver.

According to the Senator, the awful occurrence happened between Rijana Rail Station and Dutse station. Meanwhile, the train driver endeavored to change route and pushed to Rigasa station.

The Nigerian Railway Corporation confirmed the situation, apologized to all passengers on the train, and noted that the situation had been brought under control.
