Kaduna-Abuja: Shehu Sani escapes death as bandits bomb train (Video/Pictures)

Armed bandits on Wednesday reportedly bombed a train travelling between Abuja and Kaduna.

Bandits have repeatedly targeted the railway between the nation’s capital and the key northern city, which has become the preferred route for passengers seeking to avoid the perilous three-hour journey by road.

Shehu Sani, a former Kaduna Central Senator, in a tweet on Thursday explained how he escaped death onboard the Kaduna-Abuja train.

Sani disclosed that the train he boarded ran into a portion damaged by explosives used by terrorists in attacking a Kaduna-Abuja train the previous day.

He alleged that the terrorists also opened fire on the engine driver and tank of the train.

“Yesterday, terrorists attacked the Kaduna-Abuja railway with an explosive and opened fire on the train, targeting the engine driver and the tank.

“This morning, I was on board when our train ran over another explosive damaged rail track. It took a miracle for us to escape,” Sani tweeted.

Sani, in a telephone exchange with Peoples Gazette over the incident, said the bandits were targeting the trains in order to dispose of passengers of their cash and other valuable possessions. He also said the attackers opened fire on the train driver.
