Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari is meeting with family members of the Abuja-Kaduna train abduction in Abuja.

Presidency in a tweet disclosed that Buhari is meeting with people whose relatives were abducted in the train that was attacked by terrorists.

Eight passengers were declared dead from the attack, about 60 persons were kidnapped and many were injured when terrorists opened fire on about 970 passengers on board in late March.

The Kaduna-bound train derailed after explosives believed to be planted on the rail track went off close to Rigasa area of the state.

The 6:00 p.m. train, which took off from Idu Train Station at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, hit the explosive device about 30 minutes to Rigasa train station in Kaduna at a point between Katari and Rijana community.

Details later.
