About eight months after suspension, the Abuja-Kaduna rail service will resume operations on Monday, November 28, 2022.
Punch reports that a source within the Idu rail station revealed that cameras and trackers have been installed to ensure safety.
Terrorists had on 28th March 2022 attacked the Abuja-Kaduna train, kidnapping 168 passengers and killing eight others.
The train service was suspended afterward while government and security agencies made frantic efforts to secure the release of kidnapped victims.
The release of the victims had been in batches since then, with the last 23 released in October.
Speaking further, the source said some contractors were at the Idu rail station to install the tracker and cameras.
“They couldn’t install the cameras but they installed the trackers on LOKO 2809 and on DMU 003.
“The Managing Director, Nigeria Railway Corporation, Fidet Okhiria, is seriously monitoring it from Lagos.
“We are proposing to start running by next week,” the source said.
