People Are Angry And Bitter, Just Looking For Triggers - RMD Writes After Abuja-Kaduna Train Attack (Updated: Thursday 31st March 2022, 04:15 AM)


Veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo has mourned the loss of human lives following an attack by bandits at an Abuja-Kaduna train on Monday night.

He also reflected on the pandemonium that broke out at the MKO stadium after Nigeria lost to Ghana in the World Cup qualifier match.

RMD opined that Nigerians are angry and bitter and are just looking for triggers.

He expressed worries over the state of the nation.

Read what he wrote 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.
