Peter Obi knocks Tinubu over murder of Ekiti monarchs


By Kamsi Anayo

The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi, has called on President Bola Tinubu to take immediate measure to stop the increasing spate of killings across the country.

The LP Presidential Candidate urged the President to wake up to the responsibility of tackling the ravaging insecurity in the country.

Obi stated this in a post on his official X handle while reacting to the gruesome murder of Elesun of Esun Ekiti and Onimojo of Imojo Ekiti on Sunday by bandits.

He warned that if steps are not taken, insecurity would swallow up everybody in the country.

It was learnt that the monarchs who were returning from a security meeting in Irele-Ekiti were attacked and killed by suspected bandits.

Reacting, Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra state, asked the President to “wake up from his sleeping bed” and tackle the security problems.

He wrote, “We are saddened by the report that Elesun of Esun Ekiti and Onimojo of Imojo Ekiti were murdered earlier today, cause of death: Insecurity and Tinubu.

“We call on Tinubu to wake up from his sleeping bed and save Nigeria from total collapse. Don’t speak up today. Tomorrow, insecurity might consume you or a loved one.”
