Written by Olarotimi Oshin on May 17, 2022
The Abuja-Kaduna train service will resume on May 23, the Federal Government said on Monday.
Train services had been suspended on the route after terrorists attacked a train and abducted scores of passengers in March.
Most of those abducted are still in captivity.
In a statement signed by spokesperson Yakubu Mahmood, the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) said the decision to resume services does not mean efforts to secure the safe release of those abducted will be put on hold.The families of those abducted have threatened to resist the reopening of the train service. In its statement, the NRC said additional security measures are being put in place to beef up security at the train stations and along the track.
