The train service along the Abuja-Kaduna rail has been suspended by the Nigerian Railway Corporation after a train derailed in its corridor at Kubwa in Abuja on Friday.
“It happened in Kubwa which reduced the level of panic amongst passengers,” an official confirmed to The Nation.
On the suspension of operations, he said: “Currently train cannot pass because of the derailment. So, train service has been suspended for now but if our men can work overnight, then we might resume service tomorrow.”
Reacll that the train service along the corridor resumed operation on the 5th of December after it was suspended for over eight months due to an attack on the tracks on March 28th, 2022.
The attack which led to the death of eight people, saw several people injured and over 60 kidnapped.
Train operations resumed in December after those who were kidnapped regained freedom.
