Barely 24 hours after the resumption of train services by the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) following Thursday’s explosion on the Abuja-Kaduna rail line, the Kaduna train station at Rigasa, has witnessed low passenger turnout.

A NAN check at the Rigasa station on Sunday indicated that the train, with a carrying capacity of 928 passengers per trip, had barely 300 passengers on board traveling to Abuja, leaving more than half of the seats empty.

An official of NRC told NAN that only the headquarters could comment on the planned security measures to ensure the safety of lives and property of travellers.
