Unknown Gunmen attacked a Kaduna-bound training carrying hundred of passengers on Monday Evening.
The train reportedly left Abuja at about 6 P.M and it was attacked between Katari and Rijana.
About 970 passengers were on board when the terrorists detonated a bomb on the train and opened fire on the train.
One of the passengers aboard the train, Anas Iro-Danmusa, took to social media to cry out and to ask for prayers for those in the train.
“Please this is an emergency. We are inside train at the moment. Kidnappers planted explosives and the train engines have been ruined. We are helpless. Abuja to Kaduna train. Gunshots still being fired right around us. We are just under the seats praying to God while waiting for help. Since 8pm we have been here. Btw Katari to Rijana. I am a living witness,” he posted.
Hours later, he reported that the attack had been repelled as the Nigerian Army were now on the scene.
