I Was Lucky The Terror Attack On Abuja-Kaduna Train Didn’t Happen To Me —Actor RMD



I Was Lucky The Terror Attack On Abuja-Kaduna Train Didn’t Happen To Me —Actor RMD

Popular veteran Nigerian actor Richard Mofe-Damijo aka RMD has joined the growing list of Nigerian celebrities who have lent the voice to the incessant insecurity menace the country is bewildered with lately.

RMD, in a lengthy post shared on his different social media pages, spoke about the Abuja-Kaduna train attack, that saw over 30-40 persons injured and at least 9 persons confirmed killed. The attack seems to have struck right at the heart of the Northern core elites. With the former Deputy Governor of Zamfara State, Mr Ibrahim Wakkala was one of the victims of the attack on the Abuja to Kaduna train.

RMD also went on touch on the mayhem and chaos that struck last night in Abuja where bitter, angry and frustrated fans of the super eagles went rogue and went on a destructive roll at the MKO Abiola Stadium after the Eagles had failed to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup after playing out a 1-1 draw with Ghana.

RMD demanded that a state of emergency be declared in the country while slamming the Nigerian leaders for losing humanity amongst Nigerians and for enthroning ridiculousness at all levels of governance.

Read RMD’s lengthy post below;

“My heart goes out to the families of those who lost their lives, the wounded and those who will be traumatised by this incident for a long time. At this time last year I was on this same train to kaduna and we talked about how unsafe life is and the risks we were taking. We are the lucky ones.”

“Again a month ago I was on the Lagos /Ibadan train and it was the same spectre of death and attacks that plagued our minds. This is not to disregard the comfort and timeliness of the train ride and how desirable it is.”

“A few weeks later we heard reports of the same train breaking down on the tracks due to lack of Diesel. Again I was lucky that this didn’t happen to me. Point is, it could be anyone any day. On the road, at the airport, train station, no where is safe anymore. This is the extent of our brokenness.”

“If anything is an indication of how broken we are today, then the shameful storming of the pitch and destruction of the MKO national stadium abuja, is a clear indication. People are angry and bitter and are just looking for triggers. And boy! they are plenty.”

“See the initial reactions to the quite clear tweet of the young doctor who died from gunshot wounds from the train and you will see that we’ve also lost our humanity.”

“Nothing surprises and shocks us anymore. We’ve seen and heard it all. Ridiculousness has been enthroned by our leaders at every level.”

“There is an urgent need to declare a state of emergency in this country. We are heading for the precipice and it doesn’t seem like we are interested in pulling the breaks. After now it’s a free fall.”

“The government needs to do more than just promises to apprehend the perpetrators and truly save the lives of WE THE PEOPLE,” RMD wrote
