The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has maintained that outbursts by Governor Nasir el-Rufai and the transportation minister, Rotimi Amaechi, were confirmations that some leaders of the APC knew the whereabouts of the terrorists behind the Kaduna train attack but failed to act.
After the attack on the Kaduna-bound train on Monday, el-Rufai said “we know where their camps are, we know where they are, the SSS has their phone numbers, they listen to them and they give me report.”
Similarly, Amaechi, while expressing frustration on the incident stated that he had made a failed request for the installation of security surveillance equipment to avert terrorist attack on the Kaduna-Abuja rail track.
But in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba, the PDP noted that “these revelations from high-ranking APC public officials who are in the position to know is troubling as they are unequivocal confirmation that APC leaders are in league with terrorists.”
The opposition party noted that the fact that the Buhari-led government’s “refusal to act despite having full intelligence on the whereabouts as well as the plans of the terrorists confirms grave complicity and conspiracy against our nation at the very top level of the APC government’s security command and control coordination structure.”
The party claimed that such developments “also confirm that the APC government has conceded sovereignty over a part of our country to terrorists who, as a former APC leader confessed, were brought from neighbouring countries by the APC as ‘political mercenaries’ to rig the 2019 general elections.”
