The continued brutality and bloodshed in our nation must be met with decisive action, not empty words - Peter Obi reacts to killing of soldiers by gunmen in Aba

Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Peter Obi has reacted to the killing of soldiers in Aba, Abia state. 

 

In tweets he shared, Obi said the ‘’continued brutality and bloodshed in Nigeria must be met with swift and decisive action, not empty words and hollow promises. ‘’

 

He stated that our failure as a nation to protect our citizens and security personnel is a clear dereliction of duty and a sign of deficiency of the Nigerian state. Obi also said that we must not stand idly while our nation is torn apart by violence and fear.

 

He tweeted; 

 

I am appalled and saddened by the attack on our brave soldiers in Abia State yesterday, resulting in the death of five soldiers. This dastardly act remains condemnable as it is a stark reminder of the escalating insecurity and violence that has continued to plague our nation under our collective watch. My heart goes out in solidarity and sincere condolences to my dear brother, Dr. Alex Otti, Governor of Abia State, and the good people of the state.

“More directly, my condolences to the families of the fallen heroes, who have paid the ultimate price in service to our country. Their sacrifice will never be forgotten, and we owe it to them to demand accountability and justice.

“Our failure as a nation to protect our citizens and security personnel is a clear dereliction of duty and a sign of deficiency of the Nigerian state. The continued brutality and bloodshed in our nation must be met with swift and decisive action, not empty words and hollow promises.

“I condemn this atrocity in strong terms and demand an immediate and thorough investigation into this crime in order to identify and punish the culprits. We must not stand idly by while our nation is torn apart by violence and fear. We will continue to push for a better future, where our citizens and security forces are protected and valued. -PO”
