The terrorists had detonated an improvised explosive device on the track of the double gauge rail between Kataru and Rijana, demobilizing it on Monday night.
They opened gunfire on an estimated 970 passengers in the Kaduna bound train, causing confusion
Kaduna state government later in a statement said the troops deployed to intervene had secured the rail track and passengers.
It adds that passengers were being moved off the site, and those injured to the hospital.
Last Saturday, terrorists in a daring operation had also attacked Kaduna international airport, killing one person and grounded flights before they were chased away by security forces.
