October 15, (THEWILL) – The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has described as untrue a reported case of stolen train coaches said to be intercepted in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

Managing Director of the Corporation, Engineer Fidet Okhiria, in a statement, said the coaches were being moved by officials of the NRC to the Corporation’s Running Shed in Jos, Plateau State to be overhauled and put back into operation.

Okhiria explained that the people moving the coaches were doing so in an official capacity.

The statement reads: “The attention of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has been drawn to news trending on numerous social media platforms purported to have emanated from the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), in which it was reported that an attempt was made to steal NRC coaches from Maiduguri.

“The NRC management wishes to clarify this erroneous report by stating that the said coaches are officially being moved to NRC Running Shed in Jos, Plateau State to be overhauled and put back into operation.

“NRC is trying to extend Rail Mass Transit all over the country.”
