A train plying the Warri-Itakpe route has reportedly derailed, forcing many passengers to be stranded.
It is said to be the same train where passengers were abducted from at its station in Igueben, Edo State.
It was gathered that the incident happened inside Kogi forest.
Several passengers were said to have abandoned the train for fear of being kidnapped.
It was gathered that the train left Warri early Sunday and got derailed at around 12pm inside the forest between Ajaokuta and Itakpe.
The Delta and Kogi State police commands could not immediately confirm the incident, however, the Manager, Warri/Itakpe railway, told our correspondent he was just on his way to the scene and would give the details later.
According to a staff member of the Nigerian Railway Corporation at the Itakpe Station, the incident took place at about 20km from the the destination of the train.
