Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has disclosed that the Abuja-Kaduna train service will resume on Saturday, October 23.
Recall that the train service was suspended on October 21 following attack by gunmen on the train from Abuja to Kaduna on Wednesday, October 20.
Speaking during an inspection to ascertain the damage on the tracks on Friday, Amaechi said “the government is 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.”
He said the repair work on the damaged tracks had 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.”
