The Labour Party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has denounced the terrorist assault that took place in Zurak village, Wase Local Government Area (LGA), Plateau State, on Tuesday. He has also emphasised the need of the government giving its citizens’ security and well-being top priority.

In order to stop the violence and bring peace back to the impacted communities, he asked the authorities to act swiftly.

At least 40 people have been killed and several others injured in a horrific terrorist attack that occurred in Zurak village in Wase Local Government Area (LGA) of Plateau State, according to a report published on Tuesday by Parallel Facts.

The event has drawn significant condemnation since it continues a troubling trend of attacks in the area.


Reacting to the incident on his X account, Obi condemned the act and called for urgent government intervention.

He wrote, “One continues to be disheartened by the persistent reports of terrorist attacks across Plateau, Benue, and other parts of the country. The recent reports of an attack in Zurak village in Wase LGA of Plateau state which has left about 40 people dead and many others hospitalized,remains a very sad one, which must be condemned in strong terms. This adds to the growing number of these heinous attacks. These repeated attacks particularly in Plateau have become too many to make any discerning mind worrisome.

“Again, I call on the government to rise to its responsibilities of securing the lives and property of Nigerians with corresponding actions. Above all, we must take every necessary measure to drastically reduce insecurity in the nation by investing in the critical areas of human development; education, health, and lifting people out of poverty. I sincerely condole with the Governor of Plateau, Governor Caleb Mutfwang, the government, and the people of Plateau State, especially the bereaved families, over this tragic occurrence.
