Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo is “so sad” about the train attack that occurred on Monday night in Kaduna State.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that according to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart and Ogun 2023 gubernatorial aspirant, Segun Showunmi, Obasanjo was distraught when he visited him at his Abeokuta home on Tuesday.
A Kaduna-bound train (from Abuja) was forced to a halt after the bandits planted bombs on the tracks. Witnesses said the attackers later surrounded most of the coaches and opened fire before they forcefully gained access, fired at random, which led to the death of some people.
“I visited Chief Olusegun Obasanjo today to inform him of my intention to run for the governorship of our beloved Ogun State. I have never seen him so unhappy more like distraught. He was so sad at the state of the killings on the train and sundry matters! Looking at the rushes,” Showunmi said via Twitter.
“And reading about the carnage. I must say words fail me. It is time for us to bring out the hammer. We cannot continue like this. I do not accept that these are Nigerians killing their kits and kin.
I am almost convinced that there is some type of conspiracy against us as a people, pray why are our neighbours not dealing with the same mess. Oh GOD our lord step into this situation and let the David order of leadership commence. I marvel at what we have become. Kaduna my heart bleeds.”
