The Nigeria Railway Corporation has suspended train services between Abuja and Kaduna indefinitely.
The NRC said on Thursday that the services had been discontinued for the safety of passengers and staff members.
The firm stated that measures were being made to assure full safety throughout the route.
It stated that additional information about the suspension will be made available to the public shortly.
Mr.Pascal Nnoli, the station’s Manager of Train Services, stated in a telephone call with our correspondent, Fubara Pepple, said boulders were probably placed on the track that caused some damages, but that engineers are looking into the situation.
He said they were still looking into the cause of the ‘accident’ and added that investigations are ongoing and normal service would resume upon completion of the findings.
