Nigeria Gradually Descending To Anarchy – Peter Obi


Briga News Nigeria

Recasting to the rising spate of killings in various parts of Nigeria, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last poll, Peter Obi, has warned about Nigeria’s “frightening gradual descent into anarchy.”

The opposition politician and former Anambra governor condemned the recent killings in Mangu LGA in Plateau, noting that “different reports of violent and criminal acts across the country have remained a source of serious worry to Nigerians.”

“The reports of violent attacks by gunmen in the Mangu council area of Plateau State, where many lives, including women and children, have been lost, come with grave concern,” he added.

While urging security agencies to tackle “incessant acts of killing, kidnapping, maiming and other acts of terrorism,” Mr Obi said, “I most sincerely urge the security agencies and the government to rise to the occasion of arresting this frightening gradual descent into anarchy.”

In the last one week, many souls have been lost in Nigeria. From Plateau to Benue down to Anambra State, the story is the same.

The situation in Anambra attracted international attention as it involved an ambush on the diplomatic convoy conveying staff of the U.S. Embassy to Anambra on a humanitarian mission.

The Anambra police command revealed Thursday the gunmen killed seven people in the convoy and abducted two that have been rescued in the early hours of today.

In Plateau, a violent clash between Fungzai and Kubat in the newly created district of Bwai in the Mangu council left at least 60 people, including women and children, dead.
