Abuja – Mr Fidet Okhiria, Managing Director of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), has assured Nigerians of the corporation’s commitment to the safety of passengers and train along the Abuja-Kaduna Train Service (AKTS).
Okhiria told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Abuja that NRC’s priority was to ensure safe transportation of all passengers to their destinations.
“Nigerians should not panic as the news of the suspected attack is false and NRC is doing everything possible to ensure safety of passengers,” Okhiria said.
The report alleged that the train, which left the Rigasa train station in Kaduna, at around 10 a.m. was attacked a few kilometres to Katari, about 70 kilometres to Abuja.
