Shehu Sani, a former Senator who represented Kaduna Central, has criticized the SIM card and National Identification Number linkage, claiming that terrorists had contacted family members of passengers taken on the doomed Kaduna-bound train.

His fault came when a train heading to Kaduna from Abuja was attacked by terrorists who detonated explosives laid on the railway tracks.

Eight passengers were killed in the attack, including Chinelo Megafu, a dentist. Others were injured, and many were kidnapped.

Sani said in a tweet on Thursday that the kidnappers have been freely calling the victims' families and demanding cash.

He questioned why the SIM and NIN registrations were necessary if they couldn't be used in emergency scenarios like the train attack.

Sani wrote, "The train kidnappers are freely making calls to the families of their hostages; What happened to the SIM card registration and the NIN hoopla?”

Sani tweet came when the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, in a statement signed by the Director of Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission, Dr Ikechukwu Adinde, on Thursday,  urged citizens and legal residents to complete the SIM card and NIN linkage.
