Following the Abuja-Kaduna train attack that happened on the 28th of March, 2022, a former Minister of Defence, Rabiu Kwankwaso has expressed shock over the killings by terrorists near the capital of the country, Abuja.
Disclosing this on Channels TV, while appearing as a guest, he stated, “It is very unfortunate that all of us in this country have to find ourselves in this problem. The issue of security, not only in Nigeria but all over the world is key.”
He maintained, “And that is why our constitution and every other constitution that I know put a lot of emphasis on the issue of security of lives and property.”
He posited, “I’m so happy that I have the opportunity to become the minister of defence during the second tenure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo and in that office, I had the opportunity to work together with the military. I believe that we left a military that was capable and disciplined and ever ready to defend the territorial integrity of this country.”
He noted, “So, put all this together, what we are seeing today, my humble self and many other people who are associated with the military and other security agencies, are very much shocked and surprised that some of these things are happening, happening not too far away from here in Abuja.”
He added that, “Happening between here and Kaduna and many other parts of this country. I believe this is the time to advise the government to do whatever they can to get better improvements so that people can have confidence in this country.”
