Of recent, the Enugu State Police Command also arrested rail vandals that were caught destroying the critical national infrastructure, that took the Nigeria time and a lot of money to build. Some vandals were also arrested by the men of the Civil Defense Corp vandalizing the just concluded Warri-Itakpe railway line.

As Nigerians, we blame the government for not providing us with infrastructure and social amenities, now they have spent huge amount of money including loans to construct these critical infrastructures, but the uninformed Nigerians are still the ones going about vandalizing the rail.

Although many youths are not employ in Nigeria, but that does not gratify the vandalization of such critical asset, that if care is not taken can as well lead to the death of many people if the train derails at a very high speed.

According to the Minister of Transportation, Chief Rotimi Amaechi, Nigeria has incurred debt of billions of Naira for the construction of railways across the country and the country is still requesting for about $5.3 billion from the Nexim Bank for the construction of the Ibadan-Kano standard gauge railway project.

It is sad to see vandals stealing the tracks, this call for the question that, don't they know the huge amount of money spent on these infrastructure and projects? Don't they know they can derail a train that does not know a potion of the tracking has been removed?

What do you think the police should do to these vandals? I suggest the Sri Lanka Option should be applied to them. Share your views with us in the comments section.
