However, the spokesman of Kaduna State Police Command, ASP Mohammed Jalige, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview that the train arrived Kaduna safely.

Jalige denied that the attack was carried out by gunmen, saying that some miscreants threw stones at the moving train around Rijana village, close to Kaduna.

“It was not a bullet or bow and arrow, what they threw are not aggressive weapons. It was not an attack, the train was moving. Our men in Rijana are on top of the situation,” he added.
