Many people have been feared abducted when gunmen attacked vehicles conveying travellers who arrived at the Rigasa railway station from Abuja on Saturday.
According to NAN, some of the victims were abducted while others sustained injuries.
The attack occurred along the road linking airport road from the railway station at around 8pm.
Saturday’s incident was the second within 24 hours following a similar incident on passengers around on Friday night about the same spot.
Some families of those abducted have been contacted by the kidnappers who are reportedly demanding N20 million ransom.
A witness at the train station motor park told NAN on condition of anonymity that some of the vehicles hurriedly turned back when they heard gunshots.
“This is the second time they attacked vehicles conveying travellers who alighted from the train along same road,” he was quoted to have said.
“A similar incident happened on Friday night and again they attacked travellers on Saturday night.”
When contacted, Yakubu Sabo, spokesman of the Kaduna police command, confirmed the incident, promising to provide details later.
