Armed bandits have ambushed another passenger train along the beleaguered Abuja-Kaduna track.
The incident occurred near Gidan Train Station as the train was returning to Abuja from Kaduna. It was not immediately clear how many passengers were on board.
A social media user, Taliya Manja, who was the first to raise alarm about the attack, said the bandits planted explosives on the rail tracks in order to intercept oncoming trains.
A police spokesman in Kaduna did not immediately return a request seeking comments. The Nigerian Railway Corporation has been reached for comments.
The incident came hours after armed gangs carried out a successful attack on a train heading to Kaduna from Abuja with over 1,000 passengers. Many people were already confirmed killed, injured or abducted.
