But many passengers were seen wondering around the derailed train.

Managing Director of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC),  Fidet Okhiria confirmed the accident.

He, however, declined further comment, saying he was just trying to obtain more information on the incident.

Recall that an Itakpe-Warri train had, last Sunday, derailed in a Kogi, leaving about 145 passengers stranded for several hours.
