The reason behind bandits attack on Abuja-Kaduna rail track- Babajide

The bandit attack on the Kaduna-Abuja standard guage rail track, has continued to elicit reactions across the polity. And it was reported that the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC), has suspended activities along that corridor.

TVC News current affairs program 'Journalists Hangout', discussed the development.

While contributing to the matter, Babajide Akolade Otitoju, expressed disappointment at the way the security situation is being managed across Nigeria.

He spoke of the reason behind the attack, saying "The attack may be to discourage the public from using the rail and return to the roads," perhaps the bandits seek to boost their chances of kidnapping many people on the roads, he reasoned.

He went on to express that the attack was not the first, as bandits have attacked the Rigasa train station in the past.

The investigative journalist suggests that the infrastructure should be well secured through surveillance.
