Presidential candidate of the All-Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has condemned Saturday’s abduction of passengers waiting to board a train at Igueben Station, Edo State, to Warri, saying insecurity in Nigeria will end under him.

The former Lagos governor, in a statement by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, on Tuesday in Abuja, said it was another sad episode in the security challenges facing the country.

He sympathized with the victims and their families and urged the federal government, Edo State government and local authorities to work with the security agencies to secure the release of all the victims.

He assured Nigerians that they will win this war and that evil will not prevail over the country because of the strong determination to exterminate the dark forces everywhere they manifest.

He also said one of the reasons he is running for the presidency is to improve the security situation and tackle every form of insecurity in the country as security is fundamental in the development of the economy.

“We have a clear plan to end violent crimes and terrorism through our anti-terrorism battalion forces, investment in more security hardware and surveillance technology that will make our streets, neighborhoods and forests safer for socio-economic activities to thrive and bloom.” he added.
