One person has been arrested for throwing stones at Abuja-Kaduna train while it was in motion.
Managing Director, Nigeria Railway Corporation, Mr. Fidet Okhiria, said on Tuesday that hoodlums always throw heavy stones at the moving train along that route.
Mr. Okhiria was reacting to reports that bandits had attacked the train on Monday, emphasising that the story was fake news.
There was no bandits attacks on the train, it’s just a rumour otherwise they will see the bullet all over the train. It was hoodlums that threw stones on the train and because the Police got one suspect, at night more hoodlums came out to attack the train in protest against the arrest”, he said
Mr.Okhiria, urged commuters not to panic.
