Many Passengers Stranded Inside Forest As Warri-Itakpe Train Derails

Few days after some passengers were kidnapped from a train station in Igueben, Edo State, it is suspected that the same train serving the Warri-Itakpe route derailed, leaving many people stranded.

According to sources aboard the train, the event occurred within Kogi forest, and many passengers reportedly abandoned the train out of fear of being taken hostage.

According to reports, the train that left Warri early on Sunday morning and derailed in the dense forest between Ajaokuta and Itakpe. A former chairman of the Bayelsa Vigilante Agency, Prince Douye Koroye, who was in VIP, speculated that suspected terrorists may have severed the rail connection, resulting in the derailment of the train due to its high speed.

The source, a former Special Adviser to the Bayelsa State Government on Youth and Community Development, disclosed that the train’s locomotive and four carriages are irreparably destroyed. The officials of the Nigeria Railway Corporation reportedly instructed the trapped passengers to be calm and sit back in the train while they mobilised for assistance.
