A large number of passengers were left stranded on Wednesday, June 5, 2024,  when a Kaduna-bound train from Abuja derailed at Asha station in the federal capital territory (FCT).

According to reports, a passenger, who didn’t want to be named, said 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 said.

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.
