Written by News Room on May 17, 2022
The Federal Government said on Monday that the Abuja-Kaduna train service will resume on May 23.
It could be recalled that train services had been suspended on the route after terrorists attacked a train, fatally shot several persons, and abducted scores of passengers in March.
According to reports, 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.
