Abdullahi Sani, permanent secretary of Kaduna ministry of internal security and home affairs, says bandits did not attack the Abuja-Kaduna train.


There are reports suggesting that there was an attack on one of the trains on Monday night.

But in a statement on Tuesday, Sani said the reports are a “concoction and fabrication of mischief makers”.

The permanent secretary said although the state has its security challenges, reports of an attack on the train were not true.


“From all checks with security agencies and officials of the Nigeria Railway Corporation, the report that bandits attacked the train is not only false but a concoction and fabrication of mischief makers,” he said.

“[There is no] denying the fact, that the state is ridden with security challenges but it is uncharitable, inhuman and irresponsible to advance falsehood for personal satisfaction that insecurity linger in the state.”

Sani expressed regret at “how some elites are in the forefront of sharing and circulating fake news and inciting materials for reasons best known to their religious and political persuasions”.


“It is unfortunate and regrettable, that what is now news and worthy of celebration is negative imagination to instill fear and confusion in the hearts of the citizenry,” he added.
