FOLLOWING the postponement of the Abuja-Kaduna rail services, the Federal Government has commenced the installation of closed-circuit television cameras on train coaches.
This is coming a few days after the Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Sambo, announced the extension of the train services.
Trojan.com.ng had reported last week that some contractors were at the Idu rail station to install the cameras and trackers but couldn’t install them.
Also, our correspondent reported on Tuesday that two out of the initial three cameras were fixed.
Our correspondent, who visited the Idu rail station on Tuesday, observed that there were people assumed to be the contractors installing the cameras on the coaches.
However, the surroundings of the stations were still filled with dry grass.
A reliable source within the Idu rail station confirmed the development, saying, “They are mounting the DMU on the other side. They are fixing three cameras on each coach, making it six. There used to be four cameras on each coach but they put three there – two cameras by the side and one at the center,” the source said.
When contacted, the spokesperson, Nigerian Railway Corporation, Mahmood Yakubu, said he could not comment on the development.
