Five suspected rail vandals arrested in Kaduna
Five suspected rail trail vandals have been arrested and two trucks loaded with locomotive railway sleepers recovered by the Kaduna state police command.
This was contained in a statement released by the police public relations officer, Mohammed Jalige.
Jalige said the command, on May 13, acted on reliable information, which led to the arrest of the suspects.
He said 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.
Jalige also made clarification on the video and pictures of a vandalised rail track circulating on social media platforms which was said to be the Abuja–Kaduna rail track.
“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 statement read.
Jalige advised residents of the state and the general public to disregard the video in circulation linking the vandalism to the Kaduna rail track.
