Abuja-Kaduna Train Resumes Services Two Days After Attack

Abuja-Kaduna train has resumed services two days after terrorists attacked one of the trains and destroyed the rail track.

The Nigeria Railway Commission (NRC) has announced the resumption of Abuja-Kaduna train services, which were suspended two days ago following an attack on one of the trains and its rail track by suspected terrorists. 

NRC made the announcement on its website, urging customers who had unused tickets between Oct. 21 and 22 to contact its customer service unit for rescheduling before the offer expired on Nov. 6, 2021. 

On Wednesday night, Oct. 20, terrorists fired bullets at the driver side of an Abuja-Kaduna train. They also returned on Thursday, Oct. 21, and used dynamite to destroy the rail track. 

According to some reports, the attack was carried out by the Ansaru wing of Boko Haram, which collaborated with other terrorist networks to send a terror message about their presence in Kaduna state. 

According to experts who examined the attack, the attack was well planned, and the attackers are likely to try it again.
