Passengers stranded as Abuja-Kaduna train derails at Asha station



 Many passengers were stranded on Wednesday when a Kaduna-bound train from Abuja derailed at Asha station in the federal capital territory (FCT).

 

A passenger told TheCable 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.

 

Three carriages were said to have gone off the tracks, but there were no casualties.

 

Security operatives were said to be at the scene to watch over the dozens of stranded passengers and offer support.
