Peter Obi laments killings, kidnappings in Abuja

Peter Obi has lamented the incessant killings and kidnappings in Abuja, the nation’s capital, noting that nowhere is secure anymore.

Obi’s lamentation comes after the recent killing of a 400-level student of biological science at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar.

Allnews.ng had earlier reported that bandits on January 2 kidnapped Nabeeha alongside her five sisters at their residence in Abuja.

The young lady was killed on Friday, January 13, 2023, after the N60m ransom demanded by the bandits failed to meet the deadline given. The kidnappers have also threatened to kill the remaining five sisters.

The situation has sparked outrage on social media with some individuals threatening to take to the streets if the girls aren’t rescued alive.

Obi, in a series of tweets on X, said the tragic killing not only shows how insecurity currently ravages the nation but also shows “how helpless Nigerians have become in the face of these dangers.”

According to him, the latest tragedy should prick the conscience of leaders to realise their primary duty, which according to the constitution, is to protect the life of every Nigerian citizen.

“The fact that these kidnappings, killings and other reported cases of armed robbery and violent attacks, are now taking place in Abuja, the nation’s capital, is a clear pointer to how insecure the rest of the country now is.

“I am very concerned about how insecurity has continued to ravage every part of our dear nation,” he said.
