Written by News Room on October 22, 2021
The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) has suspended train services on the Kaduna-Abuja route following the bombing of the rail tracks.
Yet-to-be-identified persons had bombed a portion of the rail track on the Kaduna end during an attack on Wednesday night.
Confirming the incident, the corporation said it was already making efforts to repair the damaged tracks and restore services along the route in the northern part of the country.
In a statement on Thursday, the management of the corporation said the explosives damaged the rail tracks somewhere between Dutse and Rijana areas of Kaduna.
Barely a day after the attack, a former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Senator Shehu Sani, narrated how he escaped an accident as a result of the bombing.
According to him, the attack was carried out by armed bandits who opened fire on the train, targeting its driver.
