Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last election, has paid a condolence visit to the Al-Kadriyar family, whose six daughters were kidnapped by bandits in Abuja.

The blood thirsty bandits killed the first daughter of the family, Nabeeha we while the placed a ransom of N700000 on nine of the victims.

Meanwhile, Obi during his visit on Tuesday, expressed concerns about the national trend of kidnappings and called on President Bola Tinubu’s administration to take decisive action against the escalating insecurity

He said, “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.

“Unfortunate challenges like these raging violence in our society bring out the strength and resilience that lies within us. It is heartbreaking to witness the pain and suffering of different families caused by the senseless acts of violence that have plagued our nation.

“However, amid this darkness, there is hope. Hope that together, as a nation, we can put an end to this horrifying and deadly insecurity. We must come together, united in our resolve to protect the lives and well-being of every Nigerian.

“To our citizenry, I implore us that we should not allow fear to paralyze us. Instead, let’s stand up against this ugly wave of insecurity. May we support one another, lend a helping hand to those in need, and work towards creating a safer and more secure future for all.

“May the memories of Nabeeha and all those who have lost their lives to such violent attacks inspire us, especially we the leaders, to take more decisive action against this ugly monster of insecurity. May we honor their memory by working tirelessly to ensure that no more lives are lost to such senseless acts. Let us believe in the power of unity and in the strength of our collective will. Let us believe that we can make a difference. Together, we can build a nation where every Nigerian feels safe, secure, and valued.

“I greet the afflicted and the bereaved with deepest condolences and sense of solidarity. A nation that grieves together in moments of tragedy will surely rejoice together when we triumph over our current travails.”
