The Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, has announced the postponement of the Lagos-Kano train service earlier scheduled to resume on August 13 due to a damaged rail track.

The Managing Director of the NRC, Fidet Okhiria, disclosed this in a statement issued on Thursday.

Mr Okhiria revealed that the damage to the rail track was caused by a downpour around Power Line in Oshogbo, Osun State during the week.

According to him, a team of experts from NRC had mobilised to the site and was working round the clock to restore the damaged track.

The MD also revealed that a new date for resumption of the Lagos-Kano Train Service would be announced soon.

Mr Okhiria noted that the management of NRC regretted the inconvenience the postponement would cause for passengers and customers alike.
