NRC warns passengers against fake ticketing website
The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has alerted members of the public that it has not introduced e-ticketing on the Lagos-Ibadan Train Service (LITS), while urging passengers to be wary of fraudsters.
The NRC stressed that a website had allegedly been developed by cyber criminals, inviting members of the general public to visit the fictitious cyber space to obtain Lagos to Ibadan train tickets online.
Spokesperson for NRC, Mahmoud Yakubu, in a statement, said: “NRC is yet to commence selling Lagos to Ibadan train tickets online.”
According to him, fraudsters intending to scam unsuspecting train passengers might have done this.
The NRC, however, advised Lagos-Ibadan train passengers to be wary of these fraudulent cyber space criminals by obtaining their train boarding tickets at Railway stations as it is working hard to introduce secured online ticketing on Lagos to Ibadan and Warri to Itakpe train services very soon.
