Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has said that Nigeria will prevail over all forces of darkness in the form of insecurity.
In a statement by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, the APC flagbearer was reacting to Saturday’s train station attack in Edo State, where 31 passengers were kidnapped by suspected bandits.
Mr Tinubu described the abduction of the passengers waiting to board the train at Igueben Station in Edo to Warri in Delta, as another sad episode in the security challenges facing the country.
The former Lagos governor stressed that Nigeria would prevail against the agents of darkness.
He sympathised with the victims who were still held captive by the attackers and urged the federal and Edo government as well as local authorities to work with security agencies to free the victims.
“I condemn the mindless attack and abduction of innocent train passengers in Edo by terrorists on Saturday, from available information, the security agencies are working hard to rescue the victims.
“I urge more collaborative efforts by the Federal Government, Edo Government and other local authorities on quick rescue of all the victims.
“This occurrence is a sad reminder that we have not completely won the war against insecurity and that there are still some agents of darkness lurking around the corner.
“But I want to assure Nigerians we will win this war, evil will not prevail over our country because of our strong determination to exterminate the dark forces everywhere they manifest,” Mr Tinubu said.
He explained that one of the reasons he was running for the country’s presidency was to improve on her security situation by tackling every form of insecurity.
He added that he had a clear plan to end violent crimes and terrorism through an Anti-Terrorism Battalion Forces, as well as investment in more security hardware and surveillance technology.
This, he said, would make the country’s streets, neighbourhood and forests saver for socio-economic activities to thrive and bloom.
He commended the rescue efforts of the security agencies that had led to the arrest of some of the terrorists and the rescue of some victims, saying Nigeria would overcome.
