Repairs on the damaged portion of the Abuja-Kaduna rail line will commence immediately as the Federal Government is considering recruiting locals for security at blackspot areas.
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, disclosed this in Kaduna on Wednesday during a visit to victims of the attack on a Kaduna-bound train by gunmen.
Amaechi said following the directive by President Muhammadu Buhari to fix the rail and make it usable, the ministry has set modalities in place to commence work immediately.
The minister also disclosed that the Federal Government is also working out plans to engage locals in the communities where the bandits operate along the rail.
