Train Derails In Kogi Forest
The incident is happening only a few days after this platform reported that scores of passengers were left stranded inside a forest in Kogi State on Sunday after a train heading to Itakpe from Warri derailed.
The accident was caused by the action of some criminals who had cut a part of the track forcing the train to derail when it got to the affected spot.
The passengers reportedly abandoned the train immediately after the accident and fled into the bush due to the fear of getting kidnapped.
It was gathered that the train left Warri early Sunday and got derailed at around 12pm inside the forest between Ajaokuta and Itakpe.
