Fate Of Stranded Passengers Uncertain After Derailment Of Abuja-Kaduna Train



Several passengers were on Wednesday stranded, after the Abuja-Kaduna train heading to Kaduna ran off its tracks at Asha station, in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

According to Vanguard, one of the passengers explained that the train derailed at about 3:52 pm, less than 30 minutes after it departed Kubwa Station in Abuja.

“Passengers are currently stranded, as there are no signs of authorities being notified,” the passenger, who asked not to be named, said.

“This is the second time in two weeks that the train has run off its tracks. On May 26, a train that departed Rigasa station, in Kaduna, for Abuja, derailed in a mountainous area near Jere.”

GWG.ng reports that three carriages were said to have gone off the tracks, but there were no casualties.
