The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has explained that its Lagos -Ibadan train got stuck on Thursday due to fuel gauge failure.
NRC Managing Director, Fidet Okhiria, explained on Thursday night that passengers coming to Lagos from Ibadan through the standard gauge train were not stranded as the matter was resolved with an hour.
“The train gauge had an issue while the engineers thought the diesel in the train tank would take them to Lagos.
“The train gauge was not reading correctly, so by the time they started moving, the driver discovered that there is no sufficient diesel in the train.
“Immediately they discovered the challenge, they responded quickly and under an hour they were able to get drum of diesel to fill the tank and continued the journey back to Lagos,” Okhiria said.
The train from Ibadan to Lagos was reportedly stuck while conveying passengers to Lagos from Ibadan station on Thursday.
