Shehu Sani, a former legislator from Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, recounted how he almost averted death when the train he boarded travelling the Kaduna-Abuja line was attacked on Thursday.
Sani claims that the train hit an explosion, which “broke the Kaduna-Abuja rail track” and that “it required a miracle for us to escape.”
Sani made the claim on his verified Twitter account, stating that a similar incidence occurred the day before.
“Terrorists detonated an explosion on the Kaduna-Abuja railway yesterday and opened fire on the train, killing the Engine Driver and the Tank. I was on board this morning when our train collided with another explosively wrecked rail track. Sani wrote, “It took a miracle for us to get out.”
The Nigeria Railway Corporation’s administration has yet to publish an official statement regarding the claimed occurrence.
