Sit-at-home: Atiku reacts to killing of soldiers in Abia


Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, has urged the Federal Government to explore a political solution to the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Atiku made the call while condemning the killing of some soldiers in the Aba area of Abia State during Thursday’s sit-at-home exercise.

Posting on X, the former vice president lamented the impact of the sit-at-home order on the conduct of the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, exam across the Southeast.

According to Atiku: “The violence that led to the killing of soldiers and civilians in Abia State on Thursday stands condemned.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those who may have lost a loved one. May their souls rest in peace. But even more profound is the impact of yesterday’s sit-at-home in the Southeast region of our country on students writing WAEC examinations.

“The veil of the so-called Unknown Gun Men hiding undercover to unleash death and mayhem must be lifted to ensure that criminal elements are separated from legitimate agitators.

“To this end, without prejudice to the ongoing legal processes, I think the time has come to explore a political resolution to the Nnamdi Kanu and other associated issues. I believe that this will diffuse the compressor cooker situation in the region. It will be a win-win for all parties.”
