THE Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25, 2023 Presidential Election, Peter Obi said the discovery of 80 decomposing bodies with about about 20 headless bodies is the reflection of how insecure our environment has been.



Obi in a tweet on his official X handle available to SOJ WORLDWIDE said he could recall he had similar experience as a in Anambra State in 2013 when 35 decomposing bodies was found in Ezu River.


“I read the bone-chilling story coming out of Abia State, where over 80 bodies were reportedly recovered around the cattle market, with about 20 headless decomposing bodies. This level of barbarism and extremely cruel acts only reflects how insecure our environment has been.

It unearths how insecurity has continued to ravage many parts of the country, taking innocent lives and killing the economy. I thank the Abia State Governor, Dr Alex Otti, for taking such a bold step against insecurity in the State. This is highly emulatable.

I recall facing a similar situation in 2013 as the Governor of Anambra State. I was accompanying President Goodluck Johnathan to an official engagement outside the country when I received the sad report of about 35 decomposing bodies floating on Ezu River, Anambra.



I had to leave everything to rush back to the State to attend to the situation and ensure that order was restored in the vicinity. Investigation was immediately commenced, with autopsies conducted, before the Federal Government took over the process and asked the State Government to hands off.

Security of lives and property remains the primary duty of any government and key to any meaningful development we hope to experience as a nation. We must therefore prioritise it.

I encourage governments at all levels to make more efforts in combating insecurity in the nation. -PO.”
