Nigeria has become a killing field – Atiku

Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on Friday, said Nigeria has becoming a killing field.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate in the February 25, 2023, poll, was reacting to recent killings across the country.

Atiku in his X on Friday, said:

“It is saddening that Nigeria has become a killing field.

“Thursday’s killing of scores of persons, including the village head and abduction of an unspecified number of people by suspected bandits in Madaka, in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State, is yet another confirmation that contrary to assurances, insecurity continues to be rife in our country.

“We have to prioritise security and speed up the process of a constitutional amendment that will introduce State Police so that states and local authorities can deploy mechanisms that best suit their environment in tackling this hydra-headed insecurity in our land.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the bereaved and the government and people of Niger State,”  he added.
