We reported yesterday that a train plying the Lagos-Ibadan route, on Thursday, broke down in an unknown location after running out of fuel.
King Isaiah Obadare, a Twitter user who was aboard the train, revealed that it broke down in the middle of nowhere and the Chinese engineers who were with them disclosed that the train ran out of diesel.
He wrote; ”Boarded Train from Ibadan to Lagos. We’re still stuck in the forest with unknown Chinese Men.
They said fuel finished.”
It was gathered that the passengers later contributed money to buy diesel for the train to be refueled.
A set of photos and video shows the moment the diesel was supplied to the train and dispensed so that they can continue their journey.
