Senators from the North under the auspice of the Northern Senators Forum, NSF, have expressed shock and outrage over the Monday night attack on the Kaduna-bound train, asking the military to re-strategise on handling the security situation in the North West.

The forum’s chairman and a former governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aliyu Wamakko, said the attack was a direct dare at the Nigerian state and its security forces.

Mr Wamakko, who is also chairman of the Senate Committee on Defence, said the loss of lives of innocent and defenceless Nigerians must be halted immediately.

The senators described the attack as “heinous and unforgivable”, charging the security agencies to come together and pursue the criminals.

“It is devastating hearing about the outrageous attack which was brought to the fore, yet again, the nature of the problem we are dealing with.

“It is sad that the precious lives of defenceless citizens get perished in the hands of callous and merciless terrorists,” Mr Wamakko said in the statement released in Abuja on Tuesday.

“This is yet another wake-up call not only for our security forces but indeed all Nigerians to wake up and be more decisive in ending this menace.

“We condole with His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari, the Kaduna State Government as well as families and associates of those who lost their lives in the attack.

“But as a tribute to those lost in the attack, we must ensure that their lives do not go in vain by bringing the perpetrators to book.”
