Nabeeha: Kidnappings, Killings In Abuja, Show How Insecure Rest Of The Country Now Is -Obi

By Daniel Dafe

Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has said that “the reported tragic killing of Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar, a student of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, who was kidnapped alongside her father and siblings in Abuja, by bandits, not only shows how insecurity currently ravages the nation, but also shows how helpless Nigerians have become in the face of these dangers.”

Obi, said this in a post on X on Sunday.

He opined that “the trauma being experienced by this family and the blood of this innocent child, should prick our conscience as leaders, whose duty it is to protect the life of every Nigerian citizen.”

According to him, “the fact that these kidnappings, killings and other reported cases of armed robbery and violent attacks, are now taking place in Abuja, the nation’s capital, is a clear pointer to how insecure the rest of the country now is.”

Meanwhile, he recalled a related development of suspected gunmen setting ablaze the palace of the Traditional Ruler of Isseke Community in Anambra State, HRH Igwe Emmanuel Nnabuife.

Adding: “I am very concerned about how insecurity has continued to ravage every part of our dear nation.”

Continuing, he said “the government and the security agencies, who are at the fore front of this war against insecurity, need to put in more efforts to rescue the remaining family members in captivity, ensure that every part of the nation is secure and that every Nigerian is protected in our nation.”

He commiserated with the bereaved family and prayed God Almighty to forgive Nabeehav Al-Kadriyar’s sins and grant her eternal rest and grant the rest of the family members their freedom from captivity.

“We shall conquer,” he concluded.
