The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested the Manager of Abuja-Kaduna Train Services, Pascal Nnorli, over the leaked memo warning of impending terror attack on the Abuja-Kaduna rail line.

It was reported that the DSS issued a security alert on a grand plot by bandits to attack the Abuja-Kaduna train service.

According to sources on Monday, the manager was arrested along with the Operations Manager, Victor Adamu, and other staff members.

The news portal further revealed that the manager was arrested since last Thursday along with the operation manager and another stafff named Pascal but disclosed that one of them was released.

“Victor is a victim of circumstances because they met him in Pascal’s office, so they arrested him together with all Pascal’s staff and took them to the DSS office. Pascal is still there now,” it quoted a source.

The source said the arrest was likely to be in connection with the leak of the DSS memo.

According to the source, the letter, which detailed sensitive information about the attack, was addressed to the Managing Director of the NRC, explicitly warned that if the letter was leaked, it could lead to arrests.

“I couldn’t tell why they arrested them but what I am hearing is they said one letter concerning this Abuja-Kaduna attack, they wrote one letter to our Managing Director and it states clearly that if the letter leaks, it can lead to arrest and according to DSS it was Pascal’s office they dropped the letter and the letter leaked you people (media) made it viral,” the source added.

The Managing Director (NRC), Fidet Okhiria, refused to comment on the arrests.
