Five Suspected rail track vandals have been arrested by the Operatives of Kaduna State Police Command in Dalle Village of Jema,a LGA of the State.
A statement by ASP Muhammad Jalige, Kaduna Command’s PPRO on Saturday said the Police on 13th May, 2021 acted on a reliable information and succeeded in arresting the suspects.
He also said two trucks loaded with locomotive railway sleepers were alleged to been recovered from the suspects.
” 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 statement pointed out that 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.
It further said that the information available to the Command was 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 general public is hereby advised to disregard the video in circulation attributing it to the Kaduna rail track as the two incidents have no direct link whatsoever to the popular Kaduna _ Abuja railway service”.
