Bandits detonated explosives on the tracks servicing the Abuja-Kaduna line, forcing the Nigerian Railway Corporation to stop operations on Thursday.
Passengers were traumatized by the nighttime attack, which occurred between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, with witnesses saying that the assailants even shot live bullets into the driver compartments.
Pictures circulated online show how explosives ripped through the windshield of one of the trains conveying passengers from Kaduna to Abuja.
A notice on the NRC website on Thursday afternoon said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, train services have been immediately suspended for the safety of our dear passengers. Efforts are in place to restore service. Further information would follow immediately service is restored.”
The suspension could leave thousands of passengers stranded across the country. Civilians have embraced rail transportation following repeated attacks by bandits that have rendered road transportation too dangerous.
