The attack on the Abuja-Kaduna rail line a few days ago claimed the lives of no fewer than two people, with several others injured. Prince Adewole Adebayo, a presidential aspirant under the Social Democratic Party’s platform in 2023, has expressed his sadness over the tragic incident.
On Tuesday, Prince Adebayo revealed that he had frequented the rail line in the previous month in a tweet, describing the incident as “painful” and “revolting” to his soul.
“I’ve traveled on the Abuja-Kaduna rail multiple times in the last month, morning and night, in the company of my friends and associates. To my soul, the sad bombing of the railway and train, which resulted in the loss of life and limbs, as well as kidnappings, is painful, sorrowful, and repulsive. I mourn bitterly, says Prince Adebayo Adewole.”
Suspected bandit terrorists reportedly exploded bombs on the railtrack of an Abuja-Kaduna train, thus immobilizing it.
On Monday night, Bestof9ja received confirmation from reliable sources that the attack took place between Katari and Rijana.
The attackers surrounded the train and began shooting irregularly, according to one of the passengers who confirmed the occurrence over the phone.
“At this time, all of the passengers are laying on the train’s floor.” The bandits are shooting at random intervals. “We’re in grave danger,” one of the terrified passengers exclaimed.
The train included at least 970 passengers on board, of which some were killed and many other severely injured.
