Abuja-Kaduna Train: FG installs CCTV cameras on train coaches

Following the postponement of the Abuja-Kaduna rail services, the Federal Government has reportedly commenced the installation of Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras on the Idu rail station train coaches.

Recall that the Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Sambo, had announced earlier that the train services halted since March after terrorists attacked and abducted passengers on the Abuja-Kaduna train would resume in a few days.

Meanwhile, reports emerged last week that some contractors were at the Idu Rail Station to install the cameras and trackers but couldn’t install them.

However, it was reported on Tuesday that two of the initial three cameras were fixed at the Idu station. It was also observed that people assumed to be contractors are busy installing the cameras on the coaches.

According to a source within the Idu Rail Station, “They are fixing three cameras on each coach, making it six. There used to be four cameras on each coach, but they put three there – two cameras by the side and one at the centre”.
