Abuja-Kaduna train: NRC claims attack was hoodlums’ stoning not bandits’ bullets

The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) says bandits did not attack Abuja-Kaduna train KA4 between Asham and Kubwa on Monday afternoon.
The Managing Director, Fidet Okhiria, said this in a statement on Tuesday.
He claimed that hoodlums usually throw heavy stones at the moving train along Abuja-Kaduna route.
“There was no bandit attack on the train, it’s just a rumour. There will have been bullet all over the train if it was the case. It was hoodlums who threw stones at the train.”

He stated that the attack was because the Police earlier caught one suspect.
The MD said more hoodlums came out to attack the train in protest against the arrest made in the afternoon.
“NRC has, however, spoken to security agencies to help us prevent such future occurrences and intervene in the matter, so they will know how best to deal with the situation’” Okhiria noted.
He urged members of the public using the trains not to panic.
