The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) has suspended the train services on the Lagos, Abuja, and Ajaokuta routes over safety concerns.

The Managing Director of the NRC Fidet Okhiria confirmed this to Channels Television on Wednesday. He said this followed a report of an attempted kidnapping of passengers that left the Ajaokuta Station by road on their way to Abuja.

Okhiria explained that the passengers have been advised to use any of the adjacent stations in Itakpe (north) or Itogbo (south) until the security situation in the area improves.

The NRC MD said the Warri-Itakppe train service is still on as the train left Warri this morning on its way to Itakpe.

“Similarly, in compliance with the Honourable Minister’s directive, the Abuja to Kaduna passenger train service remains suspended until all the passengers held hostage as a result of the train attack by the bandits are completely released to their relations and the additional security system is put in place to avoid reoccurrence,” the NRC said in another statement issued by the organisation.

“In addition, the Lagos to kano express passenger train will not resume operation following suspected bandits’ presence along the Minna to Kaduna rail corridor in the North Western district of the Corporation.”
