There is an unconfirmed claim that some passengers in the ill-fated Abuja-Kaduna train that was attacked by bandits were working with the criminals.
The allegation was made by a Facebook user who goes by the name Hamma on Friday, April 1.
According to Hamma, when the train was bombed, some passengers were pointing at others (especially those in the VIP section) on the train to the bandits.
Reacting to the claim, Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), asked, "Can this be true?"
