Explosion

Nigeria Railway Corporation Confirms Blast On Abuja-Kaduna Train Route, Begins Investigation.

All services on the Abuja-Kaduna route has been stopped by the Nigeria Railway Corporation because of the blast on the train track around Rijana and Dutse in Kaduna State on Wednesday.

The managing Director, NRC, Fidet Okhiria, who confirmed the blast, said that services on the route had to be halted in order to carry out thorough investigations on the matter.

Ex-Senator Shehu Sani, had taken to his verified Twitter handle to post that bandits had attacked a train on the Abuja-Kaduna route on Wednesday. He said that the bandits had opened fire on the engine driver and tank which led to an explosion.

Report has it that there was a bomb blast, while some said it was just an explosion from bullet hitting the tank. Meanwhile the Nigeria Railway Corporation has stopped all movement on the Abuja-kaduna rail track so as to investigate the incident. Really there was an explosion but until the team that is investigating the matter comes with its report we cannot confirm whether it is a bomb or not. But there was a blast.
