Moving train stops for Lagos man who sat absent-minded on rail track after losing ₦35,000 

It was a surprising moment for passersby at Cappa/Oshodi today when a moving train halted for a man who sat absent-mindedly on the rail track.

 

The man was resting on his hands placed on his knees while ignoring the blasting horns of the train.

 

The man, who looked dishevelled, when asked why he ignored the warnings, said he was on his way to Arena Shopping Complex when he lost N35,000.

 

He said the shock of the loss numbed him.

 

“I was on my way to Arena when I realised I had lost N35,000,” he said.

 

An eyewitness said: “Even I could hear the train horn from a far distance.”

 

What was most surprising for others eyewitnesses was that it was unusual for a train in motion to stop abruptly.

 

One eyewitness said: “I don’t want to witness what I did some few years ago in this same place – how a train smashed a man into smithereens right before me.”
