JUST IN: Another 11 abducted passengers of Abuja-Kaduna train regain freedom after 75 days



At least 11 abducted passengers of the Abuja-Kaduna train have been released by their captors.

This came just three days after the terrorists released two passengers of the ill-fated train.

Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram insurgents had on March 28 detonated an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in the train and forced it to derail a few minutes into the trip.

At least eight persons were confirmed dead, 30 injured and several others abducted by the criminals.
