Nigerian Railway Corporation Allegedly Hired 3 NAF Helicopters To Guard Train by joshuisiukwu: 6:37pm On May 04, 2019
The Nigerian Railway Corporation reportedly hired three NAF helicopters to guard a train on its journey from Abuja to Kaduna. According to a Twitter user, the Nigerian Railway corporation hired the three NAF helicopters on a ‘private deal’ to guard the train which had two Nigerian Senators and other high ranking officers as its passengers.

When I saw abt 2 of d Helicopters not more 5minutes later, my thinking was dt d Nigerian security agency have reacted to d kidnappings on d Abuja highway & are combing d Forrest for d marauders. l momentarily felt happy dt at last, something gd was bn done abt d security situatn.

My happiness was busted when one of d Nigerian Railways Corporation staff checkn our tickets informed us that d Corporation hired d 3 Helicopters on a private deal to guard us to Kaduna. I was further convinced by his explanation when I did not see d inscription of the Police on any of d Helicopters. That ws how 3 Helicopters hovered over us this mornn until we reached Rigasa.

Here is a video of the NAF helicopters guarding the train below;

The fear of Kaduna bandits. The cost of running that rail line has become unsustainable. What a country. For how long ?

Yeah...but lets give kudos to the railways corporations, a government organization giving the impression or actually showing that they value the life of their 'customers', for the first time!


Much is to be done, but with the right attitude and zeal in the right places, we will get there one day.

Edited: can we all be treated as human and deserving of the basics of life?
