Terrorists Bomb Abuja-Kaduna Rail Track

A Kaduna-bound train derailed on Monday after explosives believed to be IED’s planted on the rail track went off around Katari, Kaduna State.

Daily Trust reports that the 6pm train which took off from Idu train station at the Federal Capital Territory Monday hit an explosives device about 30 minutes to Rigasa train station in Kaduna.

Details are still sketchy at the time of filling this report but Daily Trust gathered that security agents have been mobilised to the area to rescue the passengers.

“There is no network in the area so we cannot get any information until the team we have dispatched returns,” said a top security source in Kaduna.

“What we know is that suspected IED’s were planted on the track and the train has derailed. We don’t know for sure if there is any injury or death,” he said.
