Peter Obi, Labor Party presidential candidate in the February 25 poll, has condemned the disturbing attacks on Nigerians in some States of the federation.
Obi, who shared some statistics of the attack on his Twitter page on Monday, described it as “depressing” and “extremely worrisome”.
He, however, urged governments across all levels to do more to salvage the situation.
“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.
“These fatalities are not just numbers, but wastages of sacred human lives; of peoples 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,” he tweeted.
