SEE The Portion Of The Track That Causes The Train Accident In Agege Yesterday (Video)
It was earlier reported yesterday that a rickety passenger train veered off the tracks in the Agege, Mangoro area of Lagos in the early hours of Thursday, January 10, 2019, with casualty figures yet to be ascertained at the time of filing this story.
According to reports, a coach or two have been photographed crashing off the track into the neighbourhood beside it, with initial reports suggesting that the derailment may have hit a few persons.
What many people do not know is that the bad rail-line causes the train to veer off. In a video exclusively obtained from Channels TV, we noticed that some of these tracks are already out of their socket joints, some are out of the ground already, the grip from the ground to the track is almost zero.
It is the terminating and originating terminal for commuters going to Agege, Agbado, Kajola, Papalanto, Yaba, Ikeja-Along, Ebute-Metta, etc. The Iju train station building is an old structure built over 60 years ago during the British rule in Nigeria. This train station is part of the network of railway lines in the ongoing project to connect the bustling coastal city of Lagos to Nigeria’s third-largest city, Ibadan, in the second stage of the government’s railway modernisation project. The modernisation project under the supervision of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) will see to the construction of 144km (90 miles) of railway tracks.
