Langa Langa Village / Catching A Moving Train.


This is preview to a documentary film I am currently in the studio editing.

Langa Langa Village/Catching A Moving Train.

Some of the resources used in building the Nigerian Railways track network including stones from a quarry in the village and labor, were those of the Eggon people of Langa Langa Village, yet they have never experienced electricity or running water.

Rather the men, women and children of the village are subjected to catching moving trains like hobos when the train station closed decades ago. The passing train slows down to a crawl so passengers can hop onto a rail system they helped build.

Recently on a flight from London to Abuja I ran into Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and spoke to him briefly about the Langa Langa Train Station situation. I promised him first screening of the documentary film once I finish editing. – @OgbeniAyotunde
