Some unlucky Kano-bound holiday travelers may be crossing over into 2018 inside an Osogbo forest.

This is because the train taking them to Kano state from Lagos state has decided to develop faults in a forest outside Osogbo, capital of Osun State.

Majority of the stranded passengers were going to Kano to celebrate the New Year with their family members and there are reports that there is no hope for them to continue the journey.

A member of the National Youth Service Corps among the stranded passengers said that since the train developed the fault, the officials of the Nigerian Railway Corporation have not acted in a responsible manner.

The Corps member said, "This train is going to Kano from Lagos and it developed fault after leaving Osogbo.

“We have been in a bush before Ikirun since morning. We are stranded here since 7am and there is no hope even till this now. And the authorities are reckless about it. We are suffering in the bush."

Other passengers have also lamented their scary condition and called on the Nigerian Railway Corporation to come to their rescue.
