Group urge government to shut down train services
The coalition of civil society organisations on Friday called on the federal government to immediately shut down Kaduna Abuja train service for at least seven days as a measure to address lingering insecurity on the road.
They also call on the Federal government to compel Army generals, ministers, lawmakers, and heads of parastatals to make use of Kaduna-Abuja highway to improve the security status of the road.
Spokesman of the coalition, Yusuf Amoke said the call became necessary as ordinary Nigerians keep losing their lives, savings to bandits and kidnappers on the major highways in the state despite the security measures put in place by both the Federal and state governments.
They also call on the government to relief all the service chiefs from their duties as part of measures to inject fresh idea in the system.
Kaduna-Abuja highway has been in the news lately for bad reasons which include kidnapping, armed robbery and murder cases.
