Repair work has been completed on the destroyed rail track on the Abuja to Kaduna railway corridor, which was bombed after suspected terrorists planted explosive on it on Wednesday.
This is even as the minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, said normal work will likely commence on the rail corridor on Saturday.
The minister, who stated this when he went an on-the-spot assessment of the affected rail tract, said it was an unfortunate incident but this will fast-track the procument process of the security systems for the rail line presently before the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
According to him, “what this has done is that it will fast-track the procument for security installation system for the rail lines.
“When fully installed, it will alert the management of the railway if there is any infringement. We will install the security systems on the Abuja to Kaduna and Lagos to Ibadan rail corridors.”
Recall that following the attack on the rail line, the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) had on Thursday suspended train services along the route indefinitely.
