The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) will resume the Abuja-Kaduna passenger train service on Monday, with only two return services.
The announcement is contained in a statement sent to journalists on Saturday by the Managing Director of NRC, Fidet Okhiria.
According to the statement, the first train will depart Rigasa train station in Kaduna state to Abuja by 8 O’ clock A.M while from Abuja; the first train will depart Idu train station to Kaduna state by 9:45 A.M.
The NRC management also revealed that as part of the new security measures, passengers are expected to present their National Identity Number and valid Boarding Ticket before they will be allowed to board as the purchase of tickets by proxy is only limited to minors and a specified number of adult passengers.
Recall that the NRC suspended train service along the Abuja- Kaduna route after Boko Haram terrorists attacked a moving passenger train in Kaduna on the 28th Day of March, 2022.
