The Department of State Services (DSS) has issued a security alert over a grand plot by bandits to attack the Abuja-Kaduna train service anytime from now.
Recall that an Abuja–Kaduna bound train was attacked in Katari village, Kaduna on March 28, 2022, prompting the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) to briefly halt operations along the route.
In a leaked letter signed by DSS Director of FCT Command, R.N. Adepemu, entitled, ‘Security Alert: Impending Threat By A Coalition Of Banditry Syndicate To Attack Abuja-Kaduna Train Service Along AKTS Corridor’, the DSS cautioned train passengers to be extra vigilant.
The secret memo stated that a coalition of banditry syndicate was plotting to attack the Abuja-Kaduna train aimed at kidnapping passengers on board for ransom any moment from now.
