Warri-Itapke rail line vandalized by criminals
Suspected vandals have cut several sections on the Itapke-Warri rail line.
In a viral video, the vandals, yet to be identified used what appears to be a saw to slice through the rail line to a point where the pieces could be taken thereby exposing passengers to danger.
The incident, our correspondent gathered, happened along the Warri-Itakpe standard gauge line around KM 30 Adogo, Kogi State section of the rail.
The managing director/CEO, the Nigerian Railway Corporation, Engr. Fidet Okhiria, confirmed the incident.
He, however, said the train is still being operated as there is an alternative.
“The incident happened two days ago. But we are still in operation because we have an alternative,” he said
