The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has announced that the Abuja-Kaduna train service will resume operations on Saturday, October 23.
Recall that the train service was suspended on October 21 following an attack by gunmen on the train from Abuja to Kaduna on Wednesday, October 20.
The minister notes that the repairs on the damaged tracks had been completed.
“What is significant is that the repair was done by our Nigerian engineers and completed in record time.
“They moved in today and finished today and by tomorrow, we expect that the first train will run,” Amaechi said.
Amaechi disclosed that the government is working with security agencies already working to apprehend the bandits.
“When I get to Abuja tomorrow, I will see the leadership of the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Chief of Army Staff. We will find the people behind the attack,” the Minister said.
