This came after bandits attack Abuja-Kaduna train on Monday evening, where many passengers injured while others were abducted.
The bandits reportedly attacked the train around Dutse axis in Kaduna, just a few kilometres to the Rigasa Train Station in Igabi Local Government Area of the state.
Meanwhile, troops have been mobilised to the scene of the attack to rescue the remaining passengers.
