NRC Shuts Edo Train Station Indefinitely

by Oluwamuyiwa Oyedele

The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), on Sunday announced the closure of Ekehen Station in Edo State until further notice.

The Corporation said the decision became necessary following rising security challenges.

This was made known in a public announcement by the NRC posted on the passengers’ WhatsApp Group.

The statement reads, “Public Announcement: This is to inform our general public and most especially our esteemed passengers, that Ekehen Station has been temporarily closed due to security issues, till further notice.”

Another notice reads, “Due to the incident at Ekehen station on Saturday, WITS 01/ 02 will no longer stop at Ekehen Station. Please advise our customers.”

The train station was attacked barely one year after the March 28, 2022 attack by bandits on the Abuja-Kaduna train, resulting in the death of about 14 passengers while 65 others were abducted.
