According to him, the suspects are currently undergoing interrogation and effort is being intensified to identify all those involved in the destruction of the critical national infrastructure.

Mr Jalige 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.

“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 train services are ongoing without any hindrance,” he said.

He said the video and the pictures in circulation emanated from Enugu State where the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, apprehended and paraded some rail track vandals.

Mr Jalige advised residents of the state and the general public to disregard the video in circulation linking the vandalism to the Kaduna rail track.
