There is anger and indignation in Enugu state following the ramming of a train into a cluster of traders and buses at the popular Ogbete Main Market, Enugu state. The train driver refused to sound his horn, eyewitnesses said.
A middle-aged man was killed from the collision while several others got injured as they scampered for safety.
The train was returning from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and barely missed a tricycle rider at the Zik Avenue intersection before getting to the Ogbete Market.
One of the vehicle drivers, who narrowly escaped death, said: “God saved us because what the man driving the train planned was to massacre people and set the whole place on fire. If not for God, who moved the vehicles out miraculously, we all would have perished.”
