(OPINION) Train Attack: What The Federal Government Should Do To Avoid A Repetition Of The Act

Many hours ago, reports were filed by some notable media houses in Nigeria concerning an attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train and rail tracks . Having read these reports, I will be looking at some things the federal government (FG) should do to avoid a repetition of the barbaric act.

1. The first thing the Federal Government of Nigeria should do to forestall a reoccurrence is to ensure adequate security measures are in place to guard the train. If this is being done, the security Officers will be on guard in order to keep the public properties safe.

2. The second thing the federal government should do is the creation of a mini-train which would only serve the purpose of being a watchdog train. This mini-train will transport security Officers alone who will ply several train routes across the country to watch if anyone is attempting to attack any train.

3. The third thing the federal government should do to avoid a repetition of the act is to create an awareness program for the citizens. In this awareness program, issues surrounding the essence of ensuring that public properties are not tampered with will be discussed. Also, in any awareness program created, the attendees should be lectured on what the law states about the destruction of public properties.

4. The fourth measure to be taken by the federal government which would aid in avoiding the repetition of train bombing is to create, with immediate effect, social media handles where people will be able to report things they see happening to the rail lines directly to the constituted authorities.

Having raised these four points, dear esteemed Readers, what are your personal suggestions on things the federal government can do to quickly halt a reoccurrence of train attack or rail tracks destruction?
