NRC: Resumption Of Abuja-Kaduna Train Service Suspended.

The Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, may have bowed to pressure from families of victims of the March 28 attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train as the corporation has shifted the resumption of service.

The NRC had earlier fixed Monday next week, for the resumption of the train service but the relatives of the victims opposed the move, saying it was insensitive to resume operation on the route when their loved ones are still languishing in captivity.

Apparently bowing to their demand, the NRC postponed the resumption indefinitely as no new date was announced.

Spokesman of the NRC, Mr. Mahmud Yakub, in a statement on Friday, said a new date would be announced soonest.

In the statement, while apologising for the delay in the resumption of the service, the NRC assured the families, that it was working very hard to safely rescue the kidnapped victims.

“The NRC will continue to cooperate and collaborate with the Federal Government in its uncompromising mandate of protecting the territorial integrity and the internal security of Nigeria for safeguarding the lives and properties of its citizens especially as it concerns the rail sub-sector.” He said.
