Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 elections, has asked the federal government to combat the spate of insecurity across the country.

About sixty-two persons were killed in separate attacks in Sokoto and Zamfara on Saturday.

In May, over 100 people were reportedly killed in attacks by gunmen in Plateau state.

Reacting on Twitter, Obi condemned the killings, describing them as “wastage of sacred human lives”.


“The continued horrible spate of all forms of criminality, especially visceral bloodletting and killings, as witnessed recently in Plateau where over 120 people were killed, 50 killed in Sokoto, 31 in Zamfara, and 25 in Benue, are very depressing and extremely worrisome,” he wrote.

“These fatalities are not just numbers, but wastages of sacred human lives; of people who lived among us as family members, relatives and friends.

“While appreciating the efforts of governments at all levels and security agencies, I respectfully appeal that they do more to arrest this situation before it deteriorates further.


“Governments and the security agencies must not allow the nation to continue this drift towards anarchy. I sincerely commiserate with the affected families.”
