The locomotives, which were ordered in the month of March, arrived the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja on Sunday, May 31.

According to Daily Trust, five of the coaches were conveyed to Tungan-Maje, a village near Zuba, Abuja through a specially designed truck owned by Saima Nigeria Limited.

The remaining two will arrive Abuja on Monday, June 1, where they would be conveyed to the Idu railway station.

The ruling party, All Progressive Congress (APC), also confirmed the arrival of the locomotives.

In a tweet by the party on its official Twitter page on Monday, APC said the “dozens of train coaches” have been moved to Nigerian train base in Ogun state.

“The coaches have been transported to Nigerian train base in Papalanto, Ogun state and will be used on the Lagos-Ibadan railway when operations begin,” the ruling party tweeted at exactly 9:27 am.
