Following the leak of a letter warning of a probable terror assault on the Abuja-Kaduna railway, the Department of State Services (DSS) apprehended Pascal Nnorli, Manager of Abuja-Kaduna Kaduna Train Continue Reading
A credible source within the Nigerian Railway Corporation told our correspondent, under the condition of anonymity, that the manager, Victor Adamu, the operations manager, and other staff members had all been detained.
Bendelnews reports that the DSS sent a security notice to the Nigerian Railway Corporation last Wednesday reporting a plot by bandits to strike the train route between Abuja and Kaduna at any time.
R.N. Adepemu, the DSS Director, signed a document from the FCT Command. Train passengers received a security warning from the secret police.
When speaking with our journalist on Sunday, the NRC source stated, “Do you know that they have arrested our manager since last Thursday – the two of them, the operation manager and Pascal, but they have released one of them.”
Victor is an unfortunate victim of the fact that they met him in Pascal’s office. They were all transported to the DSS office and then all arrested. Pascal is still there right now.
The insider said there was a fair likelihood the arrest was related to the DSS memo leak.
The source emphasizes that the letter was written to the Managing Director of the NRC and contained critical information concerning the attack, and that it specifically warned that if it leaked, it might lead to arrests.
“I couldn’t comprehend why they were holding them, but from what I understood, they said that a letter about the Abuja-Kaduna attack was addressed to our Managing Director and explicitly indicated that if the letter leaked, it may lead to arrest. Pascal’s office allegedly dropped the letter, which later leaked and went viral.
When reached, NRC’s managing director, Fidet Okhiria, declined to respond.
