It was reported that armed bandits on Monday night twice attacked the train moving on the the Abuja-Kaduna rail line.
It was said that one person was injured during the attack after the bandits shot several times at the moving train.
Witnesses also said that the bandits shot at the train for about 20 minutes. However, the government said it was stone throwers which Nigeria vehemently disagree based on eye witness accounts.
For some time now people have been complaining about the level criminal activities taking place while travelling along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway, as armed bandits and kidnappers have attacked travellers on that route in the past, now it seems a new wave of crime is about to emerge along the Abuja-Kaduna railway line.
