The Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba and the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. General Farouk Yahaya are on their way to Kaduna to inspect the scene of Monday night’s explosion which derailed a train along the Abuja- Kaduna corridor.

Bandits who planted explosives on the rail track had encircled the train after the explosion and opened fire at will, killing a yet-to-be confirmed number of people while many sustained gunshot wounds and dozens abducted.

Our correspondent gathered that the Kaduna-Abuja High was being fortified by security agencies since the early hours of Tuesday.

Security sources confirmed to Daily Trust that the COAS and the IG are expected in the state by noon.

They are expected to meet with Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, at Rijana from where they will proceed to the scene of the attack.

“The area has been fortified by security agents, the road is safe,” the security source assured.
