"While the fuel should’ve been disappeared into the tank? If I were you I won’t continue the journey with the train. I will rather trek and video my way to my destination and post it on Twitter to show how bad my country is."

@Dannysacrosanct reacted:

"If care is not taken you'd discover the fuel was stolen from the tank at the station in Ibadan by the driver. The NRC should investigate this incident."
