Abuja-Kaduna: Gunmen Abduct Travelers In Kaduna Train Station




Unknown gunmen on Saturday injured and abducted some travellers as the vehicle conveying them arrived the Rigasa railway station from Abuja.

According to NAN, the incident occurred along the road linking the airport road from the railway station at about 8 pm.

Saturday’s attack was the second within 24 hours. Some passengers were attacked the same time on the same road after passengers left the train station heading to their homes in Kaduna and other places.

Some families have been asked to pay the sum of N20 million ransom by the kidnappers.

Naija News gathered that one of the travellers shot by the kidnappers is currently in critical condition at the 44 Army Reference Hospital Kaduna receiving treatment.

Speaking to NAN, an eye witness said some of the vehicles hurriedly turned back when they heard gunshots.

“This is the second time they attacked vehicles conveying travellers who alighted from the train along the same road.

“A similar incident happened on Friday night and again they attacked travellers on Saturday night,” he said.

The latest attacked was confirmed by the Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Yakubu Sabo, who promised to provide more details later.
