Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, has condemned the recent attack on Ugwujoro in Nimbo Community, Enugu State, by suspected killer herdsmen.

Obi emphasized the urgent need for the government to demonstrate tangible commitment to ensuring the safety and security of all Nigerians.


Expressing deep concern, Obi highlighted the distressing pattern of attacks in Uzo Uwani Local Government Area, an area he closely associates with and supports.

He recalled previous instances of violence in the region, including the tragic incident at Mater Amabilis Secondary School in Adani, where he intervened to rebuild a hostel after it was razed by fire.

Refusing to tolerate further bloodshed, Obi urged proactive measures from security agencies to prevent future occurrences and safeguard the nation’s agricultural productivity. He extended heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families and called for collective efforts to overcome insecurity in Nigeria.

“I just read reports of yet another senseless killing of harmless and defenseless villagers in Uzo Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu state over the weekend.

“I find the report very disturbing, especially recalling that these terror-mongers have continued to unleash terror on the people of Uzo-uwani over the years. Uzo Uwani is one of the areas I have closely related with and remained supportive to. I am pained by how these attacks have made the people of the area to live in constant fear of terror and death.”

“I recall that in 2015, a hostel of one of the best secondary schools in that area, Mater Amabilis, Adani was completely razed by fire, and the students were without a hostel.”

“When I read the reports, I quickly intervened, rebuilt the hostel and handed it over to the School Management by March 2016. A month after that, the people of Nimbo Community in the same Uzo Uwani were senselessly murdered, and this attracted national attention.

“I attended their funeral alongside the former Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi. I helped in consoling and rehabilitating the victims. My heart, again, goes out to the people of Uzo Uwani who have continued to experience these incessant attacks.”

“We must not allow further spilling of the blood of innocent Nigerians under any guise. Enough must now be enough. The government should show visible commitment to the security of lives and property of the Nigerian people.

“Uzo Uwani local government area of Enugu state is the main agricultural bed of the state and the continued insecurity there will have far-reaching consequences on food production in the state.

“Security agencies should be proactive especially as this area has become prone to these attacks and take necessary actions to avert future occurrences.”

“I sincerely commiserate with the people of Uzo-uwani who lost their loved ones to this cruel attack and indeed all the many victims of insecurity in our nation.”

“May God Almighty grant eternal rest to the dead, grant quick recovery to the wounded and heal our land bleeding profusely from insecurity. We shall conquer !”
