President Buhari, in the statement, said, “like most Nigerians, I am deeply pained by its occurrence, the second of its type, which has resulted in the death of a yet-to-be-determined number of passengers and others who suffered injuries.

“The attack on the train, a safe means of transport to many, is callous; and our thoughts are with the families of the deceased and prayers for the injured.”

The President had also directed the Nigerian Railway Corporation management to speedily repair the damaged lines and resume normal service without delay.

Additionally, law enforcement Chiefs were charged to bring back all passengers kidnapped and ensure that each of the callous terrorists are hunted down and made to face justice for their heinous acts as no one or group should be allowed to make the country prostrate.
