FOLLOWING the explosion by unknown gunmen on the Abuja-Kaduna train service Wednesday night, the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has pleaded to passengers for the ugly incident.

NRC in a statement issued affirmed the explosion on the rail track that affected the fuel tank of the Locomotive on Abuja to Kaduna train (AK10) of 20 October 2021.

However, NRC said the situation has been brought under control by a relieved locomotive that rescued the train to Rigasa Station, Kaduna State.

The affected Locomotive has been sent to the workshop for assessment and repairs.   “We are also pleased to inform the public that there were no reported casualties or injuries to either the passengers or train crew.

“The NRC intends to resume train services soonest, after appropriate measures, checks and maintenance are carried out.

“The NRC Management apologizes for the inconveniences experienced last night and for the non-operations of train services currently being experienced as we work towards restoration of normal services,” the statement read in part.
