Two Truckloads Of Railway Tracks Intercepted In Kwara

Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have intercepted two truckloads of used railway tracks in the Olooru area of Kwara, and arrested six suspects.

The Kwara State Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr Umar Mohammed, who spoke to the press in Ilorin yesterday, says the suspects were returning from Jagundi village in the Kafanchan area of Kaduna State when the arrest was effected. He, however, said two suspects escaped, but promised they would soon be arrested.

Mr. Mohammed also added that the NSCDC had secured a court injunction on the suspects and that the trucks would remain impounded until the determination of the case in court.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), one of the suspects, Mr. Yunusa Bello, said he was not aware that the rail tracks were stolen, and that he was only contracted to drive one of the vehicles.

He added that those who hired him lied that the rail tracks belonged to an official of the Nigerian Railway Corporation and promised to pay N1 million for his service. (NAN)
