On Abuja-Kaduna train attack

The Monday attack by bandits on an Abuja-Kaduna train is cruel, inhumane, insensitive, and repugnant.

The only solution is to take decisive action by tracking these terrorists attacking and kidnapping travellers to their hideouts. It’s inexcusable to wait for them to attack before confronting them. They only deserve death by any means necessary.

The terrorists have declared total war on the country and undoubtedly put our territorial integrity and sovereignty to the test. Thus, allowing them to experience the freedom of fresh air is unacceptable.

Surveillance can only work when these unrepentant bandits are followed to their hideouts and eliminated.

Our gallant security operatives should sustain an offensive and kill the terrorists without wasting time on our weak judicial system.

Perhaps, special courts, to try terrorists and send them to God for them to answer for the crimes against humanity, are simply the way to go.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims who are being attacked innocuously daily, while the government keeps reassuring citizens with no hope in sight. But, of course, it is neither them nor their children who are the victims. That’s what makes them not act promptly.

I, therefore, call on the government to rise to its responsibility.
