The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has extended its condolences to the family of the deceased officer serving on the Abuja-Kaduna train. 

NRC also reassured the public of the presence of medical personnel on all trains to promptly attend to emergencies. 

Last week, an incident unfolded when a police officer on duty experienced a medical emergency and passed away while aboard the train. 

In a statement issued by the management in Abuja, NRC underscored its dedication to ensuring the safety and well-being of all passengers.

The statement read: “The NRC management’s attention has been drawn to publication on various social and mainstream media on the non-availability of medical personnel on our passenger train which allegedly led to the inadequate attention leading to the late Police officer’s death onboard Abuja – Kaduna passenger train.


“NRC management wishes to emphatically inform the general public that we have well trained medical personnel and equipped medical cubicles to attend to any emergency health challenges of our esteemed passengers.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the medical personnel on duty was Mariam Abdulai who was assisted by a good Samaritan medical practitioner that happens to be our passenger on board to revive the ailing cop but was in futility.

“The management of the NRC expressed its heartfelt condolence to the bereaved family of the late Police Inspector, Nambut Selbol who was escorted on duty in Abuja – Kaduna Train service on that fateful day.”
