Peter Obi condemns South-East killings



Presidential hopeful, Mr. Peter Obi, on Wednesday condemned the recent killings in the South-East.

Obi, who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the New Nigeria Peoples Party on Wednesday, said the killings were a poor rejection of the true state of the region.

His words: “I am highly disturbed by the increasing horrific killings in southeastern Nigeria, especially the recent beheading of a State legislator and the callous murder of a pregnant woman and her four children in Anambra State.

“These violent and abhorrent killings are damnable and unacceptable! Our communities are crumbling before us, and our humanity is being diminished.

Families of the deceased deserve justice, and that can only be served when the perpetrators of these wicked acts are arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law. I indeed count on our security agencies to deliver on this and other aspects of the rule of law.

Nothing can be achieved with festering insecurity. Diametric security remains the bedrock of peaceful nations and thriving democracies. As we advance, proactive security will be crucial in regaining control of our communities.

Government, for its part, must meet its responsibility to protect its citizens. -PO”
