The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has suspended the Abuja-Kaduna rail services after a train derailed on the corridor.
An Abuja-Kaduna train derailed on Friday, a few minutes from its destination in Abuja.
The incident was said to have occurred in the Kubwa area of the federal capital territory (FCT).
The NRC has said that it suspended services on the route, due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Abuja-Kaduna train services has been suspended,” a statement said.
Meanwhile, the Abuja-Kaduna train service has been experiencing some difficulties in it operations recently.
Three days ago, passengers experienced delays on the route, but the corporation blamed it on the poor quality of diesel it received.
“The delay was caused by the supply of diesel/AGO, which fell short of the specification required to operate our rolling stock, which was outrightly rejected after statutory laboratory test,” NRC had said.
