The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) has refuted a report of attempted stealing of railway coaches in Maiduguri, Borno.
Mr Fidet Okhiria, the Managing Director, of NRC, stated this in a statement in Lagos.
“The attention of the Nigeria Railway Corporation has been drawn to news trending on numerous social media platforms purported to have emanated from Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), in which it was reported that an attempt was made to steal NRC coaches from Maiduguri.

“NRC management wishes to clarify this erroneous reportage by stating that the said coaches are officially being moved to the NRC running shed in Jos, Plateau to be overhauled and put back into operation,” he said.
Okhiria said that NRC was trying to extend Rail Mass Transit all over the country.
