NRC halts Abuja-Kaduna train service

After claiming that railway lines had been destroyed, the Nigeria Railway Corporation has halted services on the Abuja-Kaduna route. Passengers going for Kaduna were forced to return to Abuja after being unable to reach their destination due to track damage, according to LIB.

While Shehu Sani, a former senator representing Kaduna Central, claimed that bandits blasted the lines, Mr. Fidet Okhiria, the Managing Director of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), accused vandals.

The NRC in a statement shared on website, stated that it has suspended operation on Abuja-Kaduna route for the safety of passengers and crew members.
The corporation said efforts are being put in place to ensure absolute safety along the route and further information concerning the suspension will be conveyed to the public shortly.
Abuja/Kaduna Train Service Station Manager, Paschal Nnorli has however told Punch that there was an attack on the train, but could not tell if it was with an explosive.
He was quoted saying;  “Yes, there was an attack, but right now I cannot confirm if it was an explosive or bomb attack as people are saying.“Investigations are ongoing and I’ll give you updates as they come in. Out engineers have been mobilised to the area. And right now we have suspended services.”
