Families storm Kaduna train station after bandtits attack

Families and friends of the victims of Monday night's bandits' attack along the Abuja-Kaduna rail route have thronged the Rigasa train station in Kaduna State on Tuesday morning.

At least two people were reportedly killed during the deadly attack which left many other passengers injured and some others feared to have been kidnapped.

The bandits reportedly attacked the train around the Dutse axis in Kaduna, just a few kilometres to the Rigasa Train Station in Igabi Local Government Area of the state, according to Channels TV.

According to WithinNigeria, the concerned relatives of the about 1000 passengers stormed the station as early as 1 a.m. on Tuesday.

Speaking to newsmen, one concerned relative identified as Ali Baba said, “I heard the news around 11.30 p.m., and I had to rush here this morning.”

Another relative, Hajia Muhammed Usman, “I cannot believe what I heard. That is why I ran to Rigasa this morning to find out what happened to my daughter who boarded the train yesterday.”

She lamented that the “Kaduna-Abuja road is not safe, Kaduna-Abuja train is not safe, Kaduna International Airport is not safe. Our houses, rooms are not safe. Nowhere is safe in Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, WuzupNigeria reported that the Nigerian Railway Corporation on Tuesday morning suspended train operations along the Abuja-Kaduna route due to the bloody attack.

"Dear passengers, due to unforeseen circumstances, Train operations along the Abuja-Kaduna route has been temporarily suspended.

"Further Communication would be given in due course," NRC tweeted.
