“So this morning, some parts of the Kaduna- Abuja train derailed around Jere. Thankfully, the situation was brought under control by the technicians who quickly disengaged the affected part and realigned it.
Sincerely, I must commend the efforts of our troops who swiftly appeared on the scene to aid the policemen attached to the train (I even heard one of the passengers saying, “Me, I want to see the Army!” and the Army came, lol).
God bless the Nigerian Army (NA) and the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) for making its citizens feel safe in these crucial times. Don’t forget to pray for a soldier today. @3Star_GOD Thank y’all for your service.”
