Trains forced to stop as vandals damage Lagos-Ibadan railway track

A Lagos-Ibadan train was forced to stop while in transit as railway tracks have been damaged by vandals.

The train left the Obafemi Awolowo Train Station in Ibadan on Saturday morning but had to stop along the road because some vandals had allegedly removed some components on the railway track leaving passengers stranded for a while and feared for their lives as they waited for the damage to be fixed.

An announcement was made by the NRC official on board, telling passengers that technicians were fixing a fault on the track.

Also, a train going from Lagos to Ibadan was forced to stop in the opposite direction but both trains continued their journey after the damaged section had been fixed.
