Kaduna-Bound Train Breaks Down As Passengers Trek 1000 Meters Via Bush To Kaduna by AkachiNwog: 6:34am On Nov 28, 2019
A Kaduna-bound train from Abuja on Wednesday broke down about 1000 meters to the Railway Station in Rigasa, Kaduna.

DAILY POST learnt that passengers on board the train had to disembark with their luggage and walk to the station when it became obvious that the fault cannot be fixed immediately and it would take more than two hours to drive another train from the Idu Terminal in Abuja.

The passengers were, however, escorted by teams of mobile policemen on board the train and those at the station to Rigasa.

An eyewitness at the station said they saw the light of the train when it was approaching the station, but all of a sudden it stopped.

“We couldn’t hear the sound of the train again and later when we waited and the approaching light became stationary we were told by some of the staff that the train had developed fault, and couldn’t complete the journey to the station,” he said.

He said the passengers who were in their hundreds were advised to come down and walk the distance since they were already in Kaduna.

“There was no tension as both the mobile police on the train and the ones in the station escorted the passengers to the station. The passengers were all calm when they arrived the station and all left for their various destinations,” he added.

Our correspondent learnt that attempts by some commercial tricycle drivers to enter the station to reach the passengers did not yield fruit as they were prevented from entering the station.

Attempts by our correspondent to get the officials of the Nigeria Railway Corporation, NRC, to comment on the incident has so far not been successful.

Checks by our correspondent, however, revealed that another train was sent from Abuja, which later pulled the coaches to the Rigasa Station.

And this is front page news! A train had mechanical fault a short distance from its destination station, passengers chose to trek the few minutes' walk to the station because they could not exercise some patience for the problem to be fixed and somebody is making news of this. If the train's lights could be seen as it approaches the station, the train could not have been as far as1000 metres away. All these confused eggheads, do they think situations like this dont happen in other countries?

No maintenance culture. When last was the train service? So far it functioning, they will keep using it until it reaches point of death. Everything is taken for granted.

Nigerians and gross indiscipline! Must you throw items from the window? See how passengers littered the side ways of the train coaches with used items.

It is sad how we behave in this country but when we go abroad, we start smiling hypocritically to the whites with fake accents and behaving as we are the most well-mannered.

You will even see some professionals and people that should know throwing things from their cars on the road. Some will sit and watch their kids wound down the window and throw things on the road.
