A presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Peter Obi has reacted to the recent killings in Plateau State.
It should be recalled that some gunmen on Sunday reportedly killed more than 100 persons in the Kanam and Wase Local Government Areas of Plateau State.
According to Obi, “Such violence questions the government’s responsibility to protect lives and properties. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims of these wicked acts.
“As a nation, we cannot be insensitive to the ongoing bloodletting and targeting of the most vulnerable and helpless in our society. Security measures must be proactive and holistic, more so in areas close to ungoverned rural and urban communities.
“Nigeria must cease being a killing field. These numbers are human beings and loved ones of many families.”
