The Managing Director of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), Mr. Fidet Okhiria, refuted the claim of bandits’ attack on the Abuja-Kaduna rail corridor.
Okhiria, confirmed that the rail track was destroyed but he said vandals are suspected of being behind the incident.
A passenger, who was heading to Kaduna from Abuja, told Daily Trust of how they were forced to return to Abuja after being trapped at Jere, a community in Kaduna.
“The train coming from Kaduna managed to pass and proceeded to Abuja but our train which was going to Kaduna had to stay at the train station at Jere.”
“We were there for at least two hours waiting for communication but no signal came and we returned to Abuja.
