The presidential candidate of the Labour Party for 2023, Peter Obi, has expressed regret over the growing number of terrorist attacks in the Plateau State local council areas of Mangu and Bokkos, highlighting the serious damage they are causing to the country’s economic stability.

Following the recent deaths of at least 12 persons, including a Plateau State University student, Obi voiced his profound sadness.

Taking to his official X handle on Sunday to voice his concerns, Obi said, “Regrettably again, the media is awash with reports of violent attacks in Mangu and Bokkos Local Council Areas of Plateau State, where no fewer than 12 lives were lost, including a student of Plateau State University, in Bokkos area of the State, with many sustaining varying degrees of injuries. These sustained waves of attacks in Plateau State, and in every part of the nation, have continued to distress every well-meaning Nigerian.

“It was also reported that Plateau State University was just shut down due to a heightened level of insecurity in the area. And I ask, for how long shall we bear this burden of insecurity before we take deliberate calculated measures to end the menace?

“How far lower should the value of human life descend before we, the leaders, begin to frown at the wanton loss of lives in our nation? I commiserate, once again, with the Governor of Plateau State, Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang, and the good people of Plateau State, over these sad incidents. My heart goes out to families in Plateau, and other parts of the country, who have lost their loved ones to insecurity in our nation.

“No matter how dark the night is, we must remain united and optimistic in our struggle for a more peaceful and secure Nigeria in which every Nigerian will feel free to live and thrive. May God grant eternal rest to the dead.”
