Bandits caused havoc in the Northern part of Nigeria, blew up rail tracks on the Abuja-Kaduna route, killing passengers, leaving many injured and others abducted.
President Muhammadu Buhari has directed security chiefs to rescue all persons abducted during the Abuja-Kaduna train attack and other persons still in captivity.
The National Security Adviser, Maj Gen Babagana Monguno (retd.) disclosed this on Thursday after a meeting of the National Security Council presided over by Buhari at the council chamber of the presidential villa.
The meeting came about a week after the national council of state met to discuss the country’s security challenges and other issues.
In recent times, the Northern part of the country has been experiencing a spike in banditry and kidnapping.
