BREAKING: Nigerian Train On Fire (Video)
Passengers travelling along the Warri-Itakpe standard gauge rail line panic when the rear of their train caught fire on Tuesday evening.
A video trending on multiple social media platforms revealed some Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC staff struggling to put the fire, using leafy tree branches and blankets, owing to the non-availability of fire extinguishers on board the coaches.
The train which appeared stranded in the middle of the lonely rail track is eliciting condemnable reactions from Nigerians on social media, many of whom questioned the rationality in not having fire extinguishers on board the train.
Given the dire situation, NRC staff on board had to improvise to curtail the situation.
