The Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, has directed the resumption of the Abuja-Kaduna Train Services by next week Monday 23rd May, 2022.
However, concerted joint effort to secure the safe release of the abducted passengers being held hostage by terrorists would continue.
Meanwhile, the Federal Government has assured relatives of the abducted passengers still in captivity that the safe rescue of the passengers is a top priority and not to misconstrue the resumption of train services, as nonchalant attitude of the government towards their plight.
Consequently, additional security measures are being put in place at both train stations and tracks across the country to ensure the safety of passengers onboard.
Consequently, the passengers are enjoined to cooperate with the NRC for improved service delivery, safety and comfort by complying with additional measures introduced, such as requesting for passengers National Identification Numbers, NIN, presentation of a Valid Photo Identification Card and reachable telephone number of Next of Kin or close relative, for verification and identification before boarding the train.
