Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election, has urged Nigerians to work together in order to bring the ugly spate of insecurity to a stop.

Obi made the call in a posted statement on his verified X handle on Tuesday, after he paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Nabeeha Al-Kadriya.

Chronicle Ng reports that Nabeeha and her sisters were kidnapped in the Bwari area of Abuja.

However, she was reportedly killed by her abductors after the family failed to bring the demanded ransom when it was due.

Obi noted that, though the nation has been submerged in this quagmire, “there is hope.”

Obi’s statement reads, ”Today, I witnessed yet another heartbreaking moment as I paid a condolence visit to the grieving family of Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar, brutally murdered by her abductors in the nation’s capital, Abuja, recently.

”At the same time, I remembered the family of the late Folashade Ariyo.
