The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) stated on Monday that train services between Abuja and Kaduna will resume on May 23, 2022.



Bandits detonated a bomb on a Kaduna-Abuja train, killing eight passengers and kidnapping numerous more.

However, the service will return on Monday, May 23rd, 2022, according to a statement from its Deputy Director of Public Relations, Mr. Yakub Mahmoud.

The restart comes two months after terrorists detonated a bomb on the train.

The service will resume with increased security measures and without the early morning and late night train operations, according to the statement.

The statement, however, assured the relatives of the abducted citizens still in captivity that the safe rescue of these passengers is a top priority and urged them not to misconstrue the resumption of train services as an abandonment or nonchalant attitude of the government towards their plight.

It said the federal government will never abdicate its responsibility in rescuing these valuable citizens and assured of its resolve not to succumb to threats by any faceless group.

It further said additional security measures are being put in place at both the train stations and the track to ensure the safety of the passengers onboard.

According to it, the measures are not only for the Abuja-Kaduna Train Service (AKTS) but also for all the passenger train services, especially on the standard gauge railway lines.

“The passengers are enjoined to cooperate with the NRC in order to enjoin improved service delivery, safety and comfort by patiently complying with additional measures that will surely be introduced for the safety of our passengers, such as requesting for passengers National Identification Numbers (NIN) as part of our internal security check in addition, presentation of the following must be strictly complied with before boarding the train,” it said.
