The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has come out to say that he warned the nation about possible attacks on the rail line and tracks that could lead to loss of lives and property several months back.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he had even requested for necessary digital security and crime prevention equipment that could forestall such disaster in the future, but his request was not approved.

Rotimi Amaechi added that if the equipment request was granted, nobody would have been seen on that track.

His words, “Because if we had those equipment, you will see nobody on that track. And I warned that lives will be lost. Now, lives are lost. Eight persons dead, 25 persons in the hospital.”

“We don’t know how many persons have been kidnapped. And the cost of that equipment is just N3 billion. The cost of what we’ve lost is more than N3 billion.”

“We’ve lost tracks, we’ve lost locomotives and coaches. We’ve lost human beings. And the equipment is just N3 billion.”

“To fix all the things on that track now, will cost us more than N3 billion. And now even the things we said give us approval to buy – at the time we asked for it, dollar was N400, now it is N500. When you come with sincerity to government and your colleagues and people are stopping you, it is annoying.”
