A train heading to Abuja from Kaduna has derailed at Jere in Jere local government area of Kaduna, an hour after commencing its journey.

The train, which had passengers on board departed Kaduna around 8:05 am on Sunday.

Three carriages were reported to have skidded off the tracks.

Security personnel, including the Nigeria Police and Army, were present at the site to provide support.

The Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau (NSIB) said some of its personnel had been dispatched to investigate.

”NSIB is aware of a derailment of an Abuja-bound train from Kaduna which occurred halfway into the journey at Jere.”

”A go team has been deployed to the site of the accident,” the statement read.

But the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has yet to comment on the incident.

In rail transport, a derailment is a type of train wreck that occurs when a rail vehicle such as a train comes off its rails.

Although many derailments are minor, all result in temporary disruption of the proper operation of the railway system and they are a potentially serious hazard.
