Obi bemoaned the level of unrest across the nation, particularly in the North Central and South East areas.
It is intolerable, according to Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee for president in the 2023 election, for hundreds of lives to be lost in Nigeria.

Obi bemoaned the level of insecurity in the nation, particularly in the North Central and South East areas, in a series of tweets on Thursday.

“The country’s increasing instability, which is leading to senseless bloodshed, especially in the North Central region, and the South East’s ongoing disruption of economic and social activities are all becoming quite alarming,” he added.

“Now, there has been a new twist in the violent assaults in the North Central states of Plateau and Benue, with high rates of abduction, arson, and fatalities. Around 1230 Nigerians were slain, according to the 1st Quarter Mass Atrocities Casualty Tracking Report.

“With almost 600 kidnappings in only the first three months of this year, 79 of them were security personnel. With recent events in the North Central and Zamfara state, the number as of today will be staggering, even exceeding the number of fatalities reported in the continuing slaughter in Russia and Ukraine.

“It’s intolerable that gang wars, banditry, and abduction operations would continue to squander hundreds of innocent lives in Nigeria.

Since so many lives and assets have been lost there with little pushback from security personnel, the situation in the Plateau state’s Mangu Local Government Area has caused a lot of concern.
