The Kaduna State Police Command has debunked reports of an attack on a Kaduna bound train by gunmen on Monday evening.
These Reports, which emerged on Monday evening, stated that gunmen attacked the train en route Kaduna and the screen shattered.
However, the Command Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that some miscreants threw stones at the moving train around Rijana village, close to Kaduna.
Noting that the train which left Abuja for Kaduna arrived safely, Jalige explained that there was no cause for alarm.
“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.
The command spokesman assured that a thorough investigation would be conducted while noting that no suspects had been arrested yet.
He vowed that anyone involved in the incident would be punished, adding that police officers have been deployed to the area to trail the suspects.
