Speaking to journalists in Lagos on Wednesday, Fidet Okhiria, Managing Director of Nigeria Railway Corporation, revealed that four railway personnel were still being held, hostage.

He stated that while the firm had restored the damaged rolling stock and repaired the track, train service would not resume until the other people held hostage were safely released.

“Government has set up a committee to ensure maximum security for both train passengers and facilities during operation. We believe proper security measures should be put in place and until then, the Federal Government won’t approve the functioning of the train station. The minister of transportation is leading the struggle for the safe release of those still in captivity.

We could not go with force to ensure no one loses their life. We are talking about present-day technology so that we can have realtime monitoring and deploying a lot of security agencies to be at strategic locations.

We have made several visits to the IG, to the ministry for information, and we are working together to ensure that Nigerians are safe, not just  the rail users. Anytime they release some people, we crosscheck from our manifest to ensure that their names are on the manifest and we do the report to the appropriate authority.”Jamb Result

“Since terrorists on March 28 attacked the Abuja-Kaduna train, killing eight people and abducting 62 passengers, it has not resumed operation. We have lost N531m between March 28 when the train attack happened and August through the expected ticket sales on the suspended Abuja-Kaduna Train Service.”
