The All Progressives Congress National Leader, Bola Tinubu has revealed the number of people killed in yesterday’s attack.
Recall that bandits yesterday bombed the Abuja-Kaduna train.
According to Tinubu, over 60 persons were killed in the attack.
Punch quoted Tinubu as saying:
“Today is supposed to be a very joyful 70th birthday of mine living on earth. I give thanks to God Almighty for being able to survive to this age…
“I have just been informed of a very sad incident in our country, very sad indeed, that over 60 people and many more were killed and bombed on a train between Kaduna and Abuja just last night. That is a very serious incident about the security of lives in this country and it calls for a very serious sober reflection.
“For me to be here celebrating, dancing and enjoying myself doesn’t show enough concern of a statesman and a senior citizen of this country.
“This event should not be holding. I have consulted with the people you see around me here and they’ve agreed with me and being a very highly committed democrat, I have given myself to their suggestion that they agreed that this event be cancelled.”
