The Department of State Services has arrested the Manager, Abuja-Kaduna Kaduna Train Services, Pascal Nnorli, following the leak of a memo warning of the possible terror attack on the Abuja-Kaduna railway.
A reliable source in the Nigerian Railway Corporation disclose to newsmen on condition of anonymity that the manager was arrested along with the Operations Manager, Victor Adamu, and other staff members.
The DSS last Wednesday issued a security alert to the Nigerian Railway Corporation on a plot by bandits to attack the Abuja-Kaduna train link at any possible time.
The source said the arrest was likely to be in connection with the leak of the DSS memo.
The source claims that the letter, which detailed sensitive information about the attack, was addressed to the Managing Director of the NRC, stressing that it explicitly warned that if the letter were to leak, it could lead to arrests.
When contacted, the Managing Director, NRC, Fidet Okhiria, declined comments.
