Following the continued killings in some states, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi has charged the President Bola Tinubu-led Federal Government not to allow Nigeria to drift into anarchy.
Obi lamented that the recent multiple terrorist attacks and killings in Plateau, Sokoto, Zamfara and Benue states, were extremely depressing and worrisome.
He noted that a total of 226 Nigerians have been killed recently in Plateau, Sokoto, Zamfara and Benue states.
Tweeting, the former Anambra State governor wrote: “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. May God grant eternal rest to the dead.”
