The Managing Director, Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), Mr Fidet Okhiria, on Monday night confirmed an attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train by suspected bandits.


Okhiria told NAN that ”information concerning the attack was still sketchy, and no concrete information could be given at the moment.”


It was reported that the bandits bombed the rail track and shot sporadically.


The train departed Abuja at 6pm, and was expected to arrive at Kaduna 8pm.


Confirming the incident, NRC said, ”We have confirmed the attack, but we cannot give you much information right now.


”From the reports we have gotten, most of the passengers have gone into hiding and the officials on board are yet to give us a report of the situation.


”There are reports of gunshots and the train derailed due to the attack,” Okhiria said.


NAN gathered that the incident happened between Katari and Rijana train stations, en route Kaduna from Abuja
