He argued that holistic security solutions will go a long way to forestall future attacks on trains in Nigeria.

He described the Edo incident as a deliberate attack by saboteurs who try to profit from the insecurity in Nigeria.

“It has happened, we should look ahead and make sure it doesn’t happen again. It doesn’t mean that there is that 100% perfect system that cannot be sabotaged. At Kaduna, they bombed the train, at Igueben, they raided the station. Certain ideas are coming like fencing our station and all,” he said.

He, however, maintained that the security in the country must be all-encompassing and not just limited to train stations only.
