IPOB is Perpetrating Criminalities in Igboland - Mr. Peter Obi

Stop the Daily Killing, Business Disruptions in North Central and Igboland, Peter Obi tells Government IPOB is now a Criminal Group, Mr. Peter Obi reacts to Sit-at-home order
Mr. Peter Obi
Former Anambra State government and 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi has called on the government authorities at all levels to rejig activities toward the stoppage of incessant killing and disruption of business activities both in the North central and Southeastern part of the country.

Mr. Peter Obi who expressed disaffection of the rampaging insecurity occurrences in the North Central particularly quoted that Benue and Plateau states have been nearly turned to a warzone. He also condemned tte activities of the business disruptions in the Southeastern states.

For the first time in a very long time, Mr. Peter Obi condemned the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) declaring Sit-at-Home in the entire South Eastern states, the activities he related to the cause of business disruptions in the region.

Mr. Peter Obi submitted a claim that over 1,230 Nigerians have lost their lives to insecurities through the first quarter of the year 2023, the three of the last four months of ex president Muhammadu Buhari in Office.

Mr. Peter Obi's statement reads in parts:

"The rising insecurity in the country leading to mindless bloodletting, particularly in the North Central zone of the country, and the continued disruption of business and social activities in the South East are all becoming very worrisome.

"The violent attacks in the North Central states of Benue and Plateau lately took a new twist with high records of kidnapping, arson, and loss of human lives. According to the 1st Quarter Mass Atrocities Casualty Tracking Report, over 1230 Nigerians were killed.

"79 of them security operatives, with over 600 abductions in the first quarter of this year alone. With what has been happening in the North Central and Zamfara state lately the figure as of today will be mind-boggling even far more than the deaths recorded in Russia/Ukraine ongoing carnage. It’s unacceptable that hundreds of innocent lives will continue to be wasted in Nigeria needlessly through communal clashes, bandits, and kidnapping activities. The situation in the Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau states has raised a lot of anxiety because of the number of lives and properties lost with very little resistance from security operatives.

"Also disturbing is the continued disruption of business and social activities in the South East region over the Sit-at-Home directive purported to be coming from the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, when the body has publicly denied issuing such directive. What is going on in the South East therefore is essentially a criminal activity that must be nipped in the bud, with all hands being on deck, security agencies, and the people alike.

"The South East Governors are to be commended for their renewed efforts at curbing this menace but there is a need to be more strategic and intelligence-driven in our approach to reducing the suffering of innocent people.

"Security agencies should take necessary and quick steps to arrest the ugly incidents because the country cannot just be spilling the blood of innocent citizens. We as a people through our various governments should up our value for human lives in the way and manner we respond to issues that touch lives. The implications of an insecure environment for development are far-reaching because no investor will consider going to an area where their resources will not be safe and secured.

"Therefore, I will like to urge critical stakeholders in these areas, traditional, Christian, and Muslim leaders to continue pushing for peace among their people in the way and manner they conduct themselves.

"The various governments at all levels should also take deliberate steps to address the issue of poverty and youth unemployment because the provision of stomach infrastructure is the surer way to tackle insecurity.

"Also, urgent steps should be taken consciously and intentionally to ameliorate the hardship of the people.
