The 2023 Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has decried to continuous terrorist activities in Nigeria, stressing that the country is losing its economic life to insecurity.

Obi said its worrisome that terrorists activities now occur on a daily basis in Nigeria.

He was reacting to the killing of about 50 people in Ukum area of Benue State and the abduction of women and children in Borno State.

Posting on X, Obi wrote: “Once again, Nigerians are besieged by reports of terror attacks in different parts of the country.

“While about 50 persons, including a family of seven, were reportedly killed in a militia gang war in the Ukum area of Benue State, over 100 internally displaced persons, mostly women, were reported to have been abducted in by terrorists in Borno State.

“Aside from the sad and painful loss of precious human lives to these terror attacks, our dear nation has continued to lose its economic and social life to insecurity.

“More worrisome is that these attacks now occur almost daily. We must not allow our dear nation to continue this dangerous slide into anarchy. I was equally shocked to read that farmers in Northern Nigeria now pay bandits up to N100,000 for permission to farm or risk being attacked.”
