Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has called on the Federal Government to be proactive when it comes to insecurity so as to protect Nigerians and end the spate of killing spree in the country.

Obi who made the call in post on his verified X handle on Sunday, said the government must do everything possible so that the killing spree is not allowed to continue in the nation.

The former Anambra State governor who expressed sadness over a recent killing of seven mobile police officers by bandits in Zurmi local government area of Zamfara State, said the federal government must keep the nation safe by fishing out the perpetrators of those crimes and bring them to justice.

“I must, for the best interest of our nation, continue to add my voice against the ever-rising tide of insecurity in Nigeria,” the LP chieftain wrote.

“It has cost us precious lives, caused damage to properties and denied us opportunities for progress and development.
