Abuja-Kaduna Attack: NRC Suspends Train Operations

Train operations along the Abuja-Kaduna route has been temporarily suspended hours after a train was attacked by bandits on Monday.

The Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, which made this known in a post via its official Twitter handle @Official_NRC on Tuesday morning, explained that the suspension was due to unforeseen circumstances.

“Dear passengers, due to unforeseen circumstances, Train operations along the Abuja-Kaduna route has been temporarily suspended” the tweet read.

Recall that terrorists on Monday night bombed and successfully immobilised the 970 passenger-filled Abuja-Kaduna train.

It was gathered that the terrorists planted explosives on the rail tracks and bombed the train just before Rijana, a community along the rail line in Kaduna notorious for kidnapping and other security breaches.
