March 28: Terrorists attack Abuja-Kaduna #AK9 train
An unspecified number of terrorists attacked the evening train carrying 362 passengers and 20 crew members from Abuja to Kaduna with explosives, causing it to stop, then opened fire on the train, injuring 28 passengers and kidnapping 63 more.
Following the attack, Nigerian security forces were sent to the scene to secure it and save the remaining passengers. The remaining passengers were divided into groups and transported to Kaduna state by vehicles.
It was the second time the train had been attacked. Five months before the incident, in October 2021, an explosion was set off on the track, but it did not derail the train.
