Peter Obi Urges Federal Government to End Nigeria’s Killing Spree

Former Governor and LP Presidential Candidate Condemns Rising Violence, Calls for Action

by Adenike Adeodun

The recent surge in violence and killings in Nigeria has elicited a strong response from Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the last election and former Governor of Anambra State. Obi has urgently called on the federal government and security agencies to take decisive actions to put an end to these tragic incidents.

In a statement released on social media, Obi expressed his grave concerns regarding the ongoing violence that continues to plague various parts of the country. He highlighted two particularly distressing incidents: the killing of about 30 people in Plateau State and the brutal murder of a couple in Anambra State, whose bodies were found in the trunk of their car. These incidents, along with many other unreported crimes, have deeply shaken the nation.

According to a report by This Day Live, Obi vehemently condemned these atrocious acts and questioned when Nigerians would wake up to news of effective containment of the country’s pervasive insecurity. He emphasized that the continuous loss of lives to such acts of violence necessitates more focused and vigorous efforts to combat this menace.

Consistently advocating for peace and security, Obi calls on leaders, especially those in positions of authority, and security agencies, to redouble their efforts to identify and apprehend the perpetrators of these crimes. He highlights the necessity for a united effort to eradicate crime and violence from society.

Extending his condolences to the families affected by these tragic events, Obi prays for the souls of the deceased. He acknowledges the challenging times facing Nigeria and asserts that overcoming the scourge of insecurity is crucial for the country to achieve its desired future.

Despite the imposition of a 24-hour curfew by Governor Caleb Mutfwang in response to the deteriorating security situation in Mangu Local Government Area, the recent attacks in Plateau State saw over 30 people killed and numerous houses destroyed. The curfew was intended to restrict movement and reduce violence, but the defiance of the gunmen and their subsequent rampage underline the urgent need for more effective security measures.
