The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) has suspended indefinitely train services along the Abuja –Kaduna route following reports that armed men attacked and destroyed parts of the rail line, using explosives.
Passengers heading to Kaduna from Abuja returned to the nation’s capital after a delay which lasted at least two hours on Thursday.
The NRC in a statement on its website on Thursday said the services were suspended for the safety of passengers and crew members.
According to the corporation, efforts were being put in place to ensure absolute safety along the route.
It further said information concerning the suspension will be conveyed to the public shortly.
