The Labour party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has weighed in on the recent attack on Apostle Johnson Suleman which led to the death of seven persons including three policemen.
Obi, via his verified Twitter account, condemned the act, adding that it “underscores” the state of security in the country.
According to him, “The recent attack on the Founder of Omega Fire Ministries, @APOSTLESULEMAN, underscores the level of insecurity in our nation. Ugly acts like these are reported from different parts of the country on a daily basis, and it is saddening.”
“Such acts of terrorism, violence and criminality are highly condemnable. The high level of insecurity that has continued to plague our nation has continued to clog up the nation’s wheel of progress,” he added.
The 2023 presidential candidate continued, “I restate my commitment to the fight against insecurity as my first priority in governance when voted into power. I am saddened by the lives lost during the attack; one life lost to insecurity, is one too many. I pray God to grant the victims eternal rest.
“May God also comfort the bereaved families. I call on the security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of such acts and bring them to book.”
