Following an alleged terrorist bomb attack on Wednesday, the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) suspended train services along the Abuja–Kaduna route indefinitely on Thursday.
Recalled that, Shehu Sani, a former senator representing Kaduna Central, was the first to speak out about the heinous crimes.
Sani said he avoided terrorist explosives while on the Abuja-Kaduna rail line in a tweet on Thursday, adding that it “required a miracle” for people on the train to survive.
In a separate attack on Wednesday, he claimed, terrorists shot at the train.
In his tweet, “Yesterday, terrorists
attacked the Kaduna Abuja railway with an explosive & opened fire on the train, targeting the Engine Driver & the Tank”.
“This morning, I was on board when our train ran over another explosive [and it]
damaged [the] rail. It took a miracle for us to escape.”
In a swift response, the NRC in a statement on its website on Thursday said the services were suspended for the safety of passengers and crew members.
According to the corporation efforts were being put in place to ensure absolute safety along the route.
It added that further information concerning the suspension will be conveyed to the public shortly.
