Economic and Financial Crime Commission has planned to address the ticket racketeering at train stations.
The Head Kaduna Zonal Office of the Commission Mailafia Yakubu stated this when he received the officials of the Nigeria Railway Cooperation team led by their Leader Mr. James Zang.
” On behalf of the Acting Executive Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, I want to express my happiness on the visit while promising that the Commission will do everything within it’s power to address the issue of tickets racketeering in train stations.”
Earlier in his address, the Leader of the team, Mr. James Zang assured that the corporation was working towards making the e-ticketing platform a reality within the shortest possible time which will completely eradicate rackeetering of tickets.
He commended the EFCC for helping in bringing sanity in the process of selling tickets to the general public while discouraging racketeers in the train stations,
Mr. James Zang further stated that those perpetrating the crimes are not Nigeria Railway Staff.
It would be recalled that sometime in 2019 the Kaduna Zonal Office clamped down on Rigasa Train Station and arrested some touts who engage in tickets racketeering.
