Former President Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has commiserated with the victims of the unfortunate Abuja-Kaduna train attack.
Dr Jonathan also extended his sympathy to other Nigerians affected by the violent activities of bandits and terrorists in the country.
In a statement by his media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, the former President urged security services to scale up their efforts to bring the perpetrators to book and hoped that those abducted would be rescued and reunited with their families.
“I commiserate with the victims of Monday’s Abuja-Kaduna train attack, the families of the deceased and other Nigerians who have been affected, in one way or the other, by recent events in our country, driven by the violent activities of bandits and terrorists. My thoughts are with them even as I pray that all those abducted will be rescued and reunited with their families soon.
“I urge Nigerians to be vigilant, optimistic, and not succumb to pessimism and fear.
“I call on the security and intelligence services to scale up their efforts and ensure that perpetrators of these dastardly crimes are served with justice and restore normalcy to our land,” the ex-president said
