The flag bearer and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the last election, Atiku Abubakar has called out the federal government over the recent killings in some parts of the country.
Naija News reports that Atiku urged the Federal Government to end killings and impunity across the nation.
Atiku called on the government’s intervention in the killings while he was reacting to the killing of a British national and a Nigerian in Kaduna State recently.
While reacting on the recent killing of the British national, Atiku said that it was time the federal government took a decisive action to end the killings and impunity in the land.
In his words, Atiku aid; “I want the government and people of the United Kingdom to know that these atrocious actions do not reflect Nigeria’s national character.
“These killings must end or Nigeria will lose desperately needed friends, partners and investors. Not only do I condemn this recent killing, but I make an urgent call for the federal and state authorities to track down the culprits and make them pay for their crimes.”
“This can only happen when crime and punishment are a natural cause and effect. As long as there is impunity, our nation will lack unity and security. Impunity must end and must end in earnest.
“These crimes continue to reoccur because previous killings have not been met with justice. When the punishment for crimes are not forthcoming, criminals are emboldened to commit even worse crimes.”
