The Abuja-Kaduna rail services resume operations November 28, 2022.

This is coming eight months after the service was suspended due to terrorists attack on the line.

A source within the Idu rail station disclosed this to our correspondent in Abuja on Thursday.

The PUNCH had reported that terrorists attacked the Abuja-Kaduna train on March 28, 2022, kidnapping 168 passengers and killing eight others.

The release of the victims had been in batches since then, with the last 23 released in October.

According to the source, 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 Coporation, Fidet Okhiria, is seriously monitoring it from Lagos. We are proposing to start running by next week monday.”
