Hundreds of passengers of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) train from Ido, Lagos to Kajola in Ogun state were stranded on Tuesday when the engine broke down minutes after taking off.
The train, which took off from Ido, stopped at the Ebute-Metta junction (EBJ) to pick more passengers spending almost 20 minutes before taking off. Daily Trust learnt that the train took off from EBJ around 6:46 and stopped again on approaching Mushin at around 7:10. Many passengers were oblivious of what happened to the train when it abruptly stopped before getting to Mushin train station. (Text courtesy Daily Trust)
