President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday met with Service Chiefs in Abuja over the Abuja-Kaduna train incident which occurred on Monday.
At the meeting, the President ordered the immediate conclusion of all the processes for the implementation of the integrated security surveillance and monitoring solution for the Abuja-Kaduna railway line, as well as the Lagos-Ibadan railway line.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu.
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.
