The Lagos State Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) on Friday completed the first test run along the Lagos Blue Line Rail to assess its operational readiness and fix possible problems.

The test run, which was caught in a video shared by DeeOneAyekooto on Twitter, saw LAMATA deploy an high-speed Electric Multiple Units (EMUs) that will serve the Lagos Blue Line Rail Mass Transit project.
