Railway Corporation Denies Plans To Cause Religious Crisis in Osun

Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC), yesterday denied what it called false alarm that it is stoking religious crisis in Osun State by revoking a land earlier allotted to the Muslim community and gave it to a Christian and a Pastor.It said the report which went viral on several news platforms including Sun News Online, was a figment of imagination of its authors.

The NRC management however asserted that it has called for a full scale investigation into the matter and all parties involved have been invited by the corporation to come forward with their documents and claims to the disputed land. The report had alleged that “NRC officials are taking steps to convert a piece of land already granted to the Muslim Community for use as a Muslim prayer ground for the use of one Pastor Solomon”.

The management in a statement issued yesterday said the grave allegations against its officials are untrue, as the issue is about two temporary allottees having misunderstanding over matters bordering on boundaries on its land.

The Management of Nigerian Railway Corporation and the Railway Property Management Company Limited however admitted that the differences had lingered as efforts to resolve the differences/misunderstanding on the matter amicably had been unsuccessful
