NRC Suspends Abuja-Kaduna Train Service Due To Ongoing Violence

The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) has announced that it has suspended the Abuja-Kaduna train service over the ongoing crisis in Kaduna state.

The NRC managing director, Fidet Okhiria, informed the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, October 27, that the service was suspended because of the safety of the passengers, goods, coaches and wagons.

According to him, the suspension which took effect on Friday remains so till the security situation in Kaduna improves.

“We decided to stop the train services yesterday (Friday) because of the curfew and the crisis situation in Kaduna, passengers cannot go in and out of Kaduna and for the safety of the passengers and our vehicles we decided to stop the services,” he was quoted as saying.

“We will resume normal operations when the situation in Kaduna state improves and the curfew is lifted.”

The Kaduna state government had imposed a curfew on Kaduna city and environs due to violent clashes recorded last week at Kasuwan Magani in Kajuru local government area of the state.

The death of Maiwada Galadima, a traditional ruler kidnapped by hoodlums, had also caused heightened tension in the area affected.
