Police react to ‘vandalism’ of Abuja-Kaduna rail track

The attention of the Kaduna State Police Command has been drawn to a viral video and pictures of a vandalized rail track on social media platforms that are being attributed to the Abuja –Kaduna rail track.

The Command wishes to clarify and allay the fear of all train users that the said video and pictures have nothing to do with Abuja – Kaduna rail track, as the train services are ongoing without any hindrance.

However, information available to the Command has it that the video and the pictures in circulation emanated from Enugu State where NSCDC Operatives of Enugu Command apprehended and equally paraded some rail track vandals. Hence, it shouldn’t be attributed to Kaduna – Abuja Rail track.

The suspects are currently undergoing interrogation and effort is being intensified with a view to identifying all people involved in the destruction of critical national infrastructure.

The general public is hereby advised to disregard the video in circulation attributing it to the Kaduna rail track as the two incidents has no direct link whatsoever to the popular Kaduna _ Abuja railway service.
