In recent months, Kaduna has witnessed a spate of violent attacks which has led to killings and abduction of residents.

On March 28, a Kaduna-bound train was attacked by gunmen, which led to the death of eight people. Many persons were also kidnapped.

Some of the abducted people have regained their freedom while others are still being held captive by the terrorists.

Days after the train attack, 11 soldiers were killed in an attack by gunmen on a military base in the Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of the state.
